About The Cedars

The Cedars supports adults with learning disabilities and mental illnesses. We aim to provide a safe and homely environment, where everyone can make their own choices about the support they receive. We do everything we can to improve the health and wellbeing of the individuals we support. The team at The Cedars is focused on building positive outcomes for everyone.

Our approach to support:

We have a dedicated staff team who provide first-class 24 hour support for everyone; enabling individuals to make their own choices and set about achieving their goals.

The Cedars promotes Craegmoor's communication strategy, "Your Voice", which encourages individuals to voice their views about the support they receive, through a medium that suits them. Monthly meetings are held where individuals are able to represent the views and voices of others living at the service. This is extended to area, divisional and national level.

We encourage and support everyone at The Cedars to recognise and identify their goals and ambitions, as well as how they would like to go about achieving them.

What it’s like to live here:

The people that we support are encouraged through their Person Centred Plans to achieve their goals and aspirations. This might be attending college to access courses such as cooking, art and daily living skills, or it could be work placements and other day opportunities in line with their goals.

Within the service we continually and consistently promote the development of social skills, independent living and personal responsibility. Individuals learn these skills and responsibilities through tasks such as shopping, cooking, doing laundry and cleaning.

The Cedars is situated within a residential area of Gloucester, with excellent local amenities and the city centre just a few minutes away by foot. Local busses pass nearby every 10 minutes and the train station is also within easy reach.

The Cedars has nine bedrooms, two substantial airy lounge areas, a dining room, a utility room, and a tranquil garden which offers a relaxing atmosphere and a quiet retreat. A large wooden lodge is situated in the garden which is used for arts and crafts, computer activities, watching films and relaxing. Our aromatherapist also uses the lodge when making visits.

Everyone is encouraged and supported to use our two kitchens to prepare and cook meals for themselves and others. People are encouraged to personalise their bedrooms, to make the service as homely as possible.
