About Weir End House
Weir End House provides support for individuals who have learning disabilities, mental health problems, autism and behaviours that challenge. Our service is able to provide individuals with a safe and homely environment, where we are focused on building positive outcomes for everyone.
Our approach to care:
We believe it is important for individuals to maintain involvement with the local community and it is our aim to enable people to live as independently as possible in the future. People at the service work very closely with the local community and are involved in various groups and are members of different committees.
Weir End House promotes Craegmoor's communication strategy, "Your Voice". We encourage people to provide their feedback and views on the support they receive – and they are able to do this through their preferred method of communication. We hold regular meetings where individuals can voice their opinions, as well as speaking on behalf of others.
What it’s like to live here:
Individuals at Weir End House are never short of activities to get involved with, whether this is within the house or out of the service. Some people we support access college classes to develop skills, whereas others seek employment or voluntary positions. These opportunities are based on the goals and aspirations outlined on each person’s Person Centred Plan, something that individuals are encouraged to play a big part in creating.
Weir End House is in an enviable location, so people staying with us take advantage of this by going for scenic walks by the riverside. We are based in Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire, giving individuals access to a snooker club, a library, a heritage centre and many restaurants and pubs. There are local supermarkets, weekly markets and monthly farmers markets. There are good bus links to the surrounding areas, such as the Forest of Dean.
