About Homeleigh Farm

Homeleigh Farm is a specialist, male-only service, which supports people with learning disabilities and behaviour which challenges, as well as a forensic history of offending. The service provides a safe, yet homely environment, whereby existing life skills can be developed and new ones achieved. We do everything we can to improve the health, safety and wellbeing of the individuals we support and as a team we are focused on building positive outcomes for everyone.

Our approach to support:

At Homeleigh Farm, we encourage each individual to make their own decisions about the care and support they receive. We do this by means of a Person Centred Plan, something that we believe is essential for providing the best service to the people we support. Plans are made with individuals, their family and a key worker, to ensure that all needs are met.

Person Centred Plans are also key for identifying the goals and aspirations of each person we support and it is is vital that they are fully involved in devising their own specific goals.Our highly trained staff team support the people who live at the farm in achieving the goals they have agreed.

What it’s like to live here:

Homeleigh Farm has a large garden with a vegetable area and an orchard for the people who live at the farm to maintain. We also keep a number of chickens on site. This provides the people we support to develop new skills, encourage independent living and build communication skills.

The people who live here have varied interests and Homeleigh Farm aims to meet their needs and expectations. There are community-based activities to get involved with, which include: horse riding, fishing, socialising at the local pub and visiting the library.

Homeleigh Farm is set in a rural location approximately one mile from the small town of Lydd. Lydd has a handful of shops, a library and several pubs. Dungeness and the bird sanctuary are also close by. The famous Hythe and New Romney light railway is in Dungeness, along with two lighthouses.

“I like living at Homeleigh Farm, I enjoy the holidays and the trips out. I also like my room and my fish tank.” – Person supported by Homeleigh Farm
