Riverdale is ideally situated to promote recovery as it is set within easy reach of the centre of the city and enjoys the benefits of city life, with all its amenities and facilities but also the peaceful and friendly atmosphere of the local residential area which encourages social inclusion and citizenship.
Riverdale is based on the Recovery Model and also offers relational support to service users. At the heart of the service are the service users themselves and the house is very much led by working in partnership to co-produce the service.
Riverdale has been very successful in working with its service users to enable them to develop their life skills, coping strategies, increased insight and motivation to greater independence, enabling them to move onto complete independence or to supported living.
Riverdale is ideal for men who prefer a smaller homely environment which is relaxed, calm and well structured.
Riverdale was the first of our social care homes and in 2014 we celebrated its 10th anniversary with many service users returning to join in our celebrations, recognising the key role that Riverdale had taken in their journey to recovery.
