About York Road
At York Road, we provide accommodation on a residential basis for five young adults with varying learning disabilities. We specialise in providing support for people with communication difficulties and autism.
Our approach to care:
The staff team at York Road strive to provide just the right level of support to individuals so they can achieve a high level of independence. We can also provide 1:1 support where necessary.
All residents at York Road are involved in the creation process of their Person Centred Plans, which exist to allow staff to deliver the best possible service. These plans also give individuals the chance to outline their goals and aspirations, and we will support people to identify what steps are needed to make them happen.
What it’s like to live here:
Many people we support at York Road regularly get involved in household tasks. These include cleaning and cooking, as we seek to positively promote living skills. Some of the people attend the local college where they are enrolled on life skills courses and others go to their work placement at the local nature reserve.
There is a social club in the village, where those supported at York Road meet up with friends once a week and have a disco. Other favoured leisure activities include horse carriage riding, swimming, cinema visits and bowling.
York Road has great bus and train links to Southport. Just a 15 minute walk from the beach, there are also annual flower and air shows that take place in the area. Numerous events take place at the local theatre, which prove very popular amongst the individuals supported at York Road.
