Linwood is a supported living service for two people, which opened in 2005. The two men who moved into the Linwood service are now well settled and thriving in their homely environment. They have both developed their skills and confidence and have integrated successfully into their local community. This has been due to them being supported by an established and skilled team of support workers.
The Linwood service has a well maintained rear garden encompassing a green house, which has enabled one of the tenants to develop his gardening interests and skills. The other tenant prefers to eat the proceeds.
The tenants’ relatives have expressed their positive feedback on the service provision, by responding to the twice yearly Carers Questionnaires, which are sent to them.
Friends and relatives are welcome at all times to visit the Linwood service, and this has proved successful in developing support and friendship between the tenants, the staff and friends and relatives
