Its location is not only excellent for promoting social inclusion but for developing independence and greater community skills. There are excellent transport links and within a short distance there is access to local colleges, a leisure centre, shops, post office, cafes and a GP surgery.
Witla Court comprises of two separate homes each accommodating four people and sharing a garden. This offers a range of opportunities for our service users to socialise, as well as providing a low stimulus environment in which to pursue therapeutic activities, hobbies or interests.
