About Wells Road

Based near Bristol, Wells Road is a specialist residential service that can accommodate six young adults with learning disabilities who require positive behaviour support and assistance with complex needs. Some of the people we support also have mental health issues, and predominantly have dual diagnosis, as well as a range of other disabilities such as epilepsy or autism.

Our service is supported by a quality assurance team whose aim is to empower the people we support to take control of their lives. We are committed to providing just enough support to encourage individuals to develop the skills that they need to live as independently as possible. We have a high staffing ratio which is tailored to the needs of the people we support.

Our approach to care:

At Wells Road, we provide support in an environment that is safe and conducive to rehabilitation and personal growth. Our staff members are highly motivated to support every individual to identify and achieve their goals; we believe that with just the right amount of support, each and every individual will be able to enjoy the same life opportunities as everyone else.

We offer a 24/7 residential service with step-down facilities that enable people with a high level of needs to develop a greater degree of personal autonomy. Our aim is to deliver an increasing sense of self-management and empowerment that will lead to more independent living, with the minimum support required. The people we support are empowered to take control of their lives and work towards independence which is consummate with their skills, confidence and aspirations.

Wells Roads takes care and effort to promotes physical and mental health and wellbeing, whilst the individuals supported have their views heard though Craegmoor’s ‘Your Voice’ feedback initiative.

What it’s like to live here:

At Wells Road, our main objective is to ensure that people gain the skills they need to live the lives they want to in the community. We continually and consistently promote the development of independent living skills, social skills and personal responsibility to aid and enhance daily living.

Wells Road is located near many local facilities including shopping centres, a cinema, bowling alley, clubs, restaurants and cafes; there are shops within a ten minute walk and Bristol city centre is a short bus ride away. Our residential service is centrally located and easily accessible by public transport, situated on a main bus route and only a fifteen minute walk away from the main train station.
