About Combs Court

Combs Court comprises of three separate homes, a shared flat, and four individual bungalows which provide assessment and support for adults living with a primary learning disability diagnosis but may present complex conditions and mild to moderate challenging behaviours. There is ground floor accommodation and adapted equipment as required by individual needs. 

Our approach to support:

At Combs Court, we offer support over 24 hours, and the people we assist are involved in making decisions about how their service is provided through their support networks. Feedback can also be given by each individual by through meetings and also through the Craegmoor “Your Voice” feedback initiative.

We provide innovative person centred support programmes in a safe and caring environment, allowing individuals to progress through a care pathway that fulfils each individual’s maximum potential to live more independently.

A number of people at Combs Court have dedicated 1:1 packages to enable them to undertake specific activities.

What it’s like to live here:

People who live in the service have a wide variety of opportunities to choose from; for example:

  • The service operates a five day per week day service on-site offering social opportunities as well as more formal sessions such as ASDAN skills courses
  • A number of people access work placements such as working at a local college
  • People are encouraged to take part in local community events, as such a number of people attend afternoon and evening social clubs and events
  • People are regularly involved in cooking within their area of the home, assisting with preparing meals or baking cakes
  • Alternatively, people are able to relax in their own space reading or undertaking hobbies if they choose

In terms of our location, we are situated in a residential area close to local shops and facilities; these are no more than two minutes walk away.

Combs Court is less than a mile away from the centre of the local town which offers a full range of shops and services including a church, library, cinema, leisure centre with swimming pool and various sports clubs.

There is a regular bus service to Ipswich which stops at the bottom of the driveway, and the local mainline station is a mile away on the edge of town.
