The Dunes

About The Dunes

Situated in Poole, The Dunes is a specialist service for people with learning disabilities. Our service has been specially designed for individuals with complex needs, and our team is always on hand to ensure that each and every need is met.

Our approach to support:

We are committed to providing just enough support to empower and encourage all individuals utilising our services to develop the skills they need to live as independently as possible. By using Person Centred Plans, we help people to work towards a level of independence which fits with their skills, confidence and aspirations.

We encourage the people we support at The Dunes to personalise their rooms to their own taste as well as to take an active role in the running of the home. They are also able to put forward their own ideas about service through the “Your Voice” feedback programme.

What it’s like to live here:

We are based within easy walking distance of the shopping area on Ashley Road, Tower Park, as well as local transport links.

People who currently live at The Dunes like to help with meal planning, cooking, cleaning, activity planning, socialising and gardening on a regular basis. Some of the people we support go on work placements and particularly enjoy this independence.

There is a good sized garden at the rear of the home, with a patio area which is regularly used for barbecues. At the front of the home there is sufficient space for off-road parking.
