Beechley Drive

Beechley Drive

Beechley Drive is an enhanced community home, providing a community focused rehabilitation and recovery service for adults with learning disabilities and mental health challenges. Located in Fairwater, just outside of Cardiff, the home is ideally located for safe, structured and gradual reintegration into the local community.

The home is made up of:

  • A mixed-gender unit for 4 adults
  • A female-only unit

Our approach

Our team works together to develop personalised, recovery-focused treatment programmes and care pathways. The home strives to stabilise mental health, reduce behaviours that challenge, develop daily living skills and actively maintain working relationships with case managers and community teams, to enable a smooth and successful transition to life outside the home environment. 

All individuals are encouraged and supported to participate in meetings promoting self-advocacy and empowerment, in a supportive environment. We are passionate that all individuals can maintain independence and we encourage this with support, security and compassion as part of a supported-living package.

The environment

Our service offers a mix of en-suite and bedroom-only accommodation with staff on site 24 hours a day. Our communal kitchen areas are equipped for making breakfast, light snacks and drinks in each of the homes.

We also provide domestic laundry areas for people to use with staff support if required. This encourages independence and daily living skills.

Residents are welcome to furnish their room with items from home.

The Team

The unit is led by an effective multidisciplinary team, experienced in rehabilitation, recovery and caring for individuals with complex needs. The team includes:

  • Consultant psychiatrists
  • Psychologists
  • Occupational therapists

The team also benefits from a progressive training programme towards achieving NVQ standards. The staff team are all trained to at least NVQ II and III.

Our dedicated staff team are on duty 24 hours a day, providing support with all day-to-day aspects of life – empowering people to live life to their full potential.
