The Glen is located on the outskirts of Newport in a beautiful rural location, which has proved ideal for those with forensic histories that preclude city living, or those that require a more low stimulus environment.
All clients follow an individualised activity plan and are able to pursue their own interests and hobbies. The home has a large garden and poly-tunnel where they may pursue horticultural interests and develop work related skills. Some clients do voluntary work and are keen to further develop their work skills, moving towards paid employment. Clients are supported to learn money management, cookery skills, relationship skills, develop insight into needs, self-medicate, to use public transport and to learn the skills of homecare and maintenance.
With its good access to the facilities at Newport, The Glen positively encourages community participation and citizenship with service users joining local sports teams and carrying out local voluntary work.
The team work in partnership with clients to co-produce recovery plans to ensure that we support each individual to take the steps along their recovery pathway to a greater independence as early as possible.
The Glen has been a champion in tackling stigma and prejudice in relation to mental health and learning disability through its engagement in community activities.
