The atmosphere at The Red House is relaxed, and is focused around individuals' involvement as they make the decisions that affect their home.
Each person has their own bedroom, many of which include washing facilities. Everyone is encouraged and supported to personalise their bedrooms.
A range of activities
All individuals at The Red House benefit from the many activities available within the service and its scenic surroundings. Everyone helps to choose and plan the activities they would like to do.
The people that we support are encouraged through their Person Centred Plans to achieve their goals and aspirations. For some people this means attending college to access various courses, including cooking, art and daily living skills. For others it means work placements and other day opportunities in line with their goals.
Within the house we continually and consistently promote the development of social skills, independent living and personal responsibility. This includes daily skills such as shopping, cooking, doing laundry and cleaning, and tasks are dependent upon an individual's ability. The people who live here are very proud of their home as they have so much involvement in creating it.
The Red House is situated in the picturesque village of Ruspidge in the heart of the Forest of Dean. It is one mile from Cinderford town centre and there are local shops and pubs within walking distance.
There are many opportunities for scenic walks, picnics and bike rides within a woodland setting. There are fishing lakes and many tourist sites to visit, providing a wide range of activities to fill the days.
