About Cherrywood House

Cherrywood House in Weston Super Mare provides support for 14 people with learning disabilities, autism and challenging behaviour. Our team works to encourage, support and promote independence for everyone living at at Cherrywood, and we are passionate on building positive outcomes for everyone.

Our approach to support:

At Cherrywood House, everyone is involved in designing their own Person Centred Plan, which is created with staff support. These plans help individuals to make their own choices about the support they receive, which enables staff to provide the best possible care and service.

We encourage and support people living at Cherrywood House to recognise and identify their goals and ambitions and decide how they would like to go about achieving them. Staff at Cherrywood House support people to gain greater independence through educational programmes or employment. The level of support is dependent on each individual's needs.

We encourage everyone at Cherrywood House to get involved in many activities and we support them to live an active a life as possible.

What it’s like to live here:

The Cherrywood House staff team encourage and support people to access a range of day opportunities, local colleges and employment. We support and encourage people to participate in activities that promote life skills and independence; from cooking, cleaning and shopping, to making appointments, managing finances and attending work placements. In the evenings some people like to visit the pub, enjoy a meal out or watch a show at the theatre.

Cherrywood House is situated on the edge of Weston Super Mare. It is a short walk away from the woods that lead to the beach and a short bus ride to the town of Weston Super Mare. There, most of the high street stores can be found; alongside a theatre, cinemas, a bowling centre, museums, cafes and restaurants. Colleges and sports centres are also close by.

There is easy access to the railway station; Bristol is just 30 minutes away, other nearby places include Burnham-on-Sea, Taunton and Devon.
