Everyone gets involved at Redlands, choosing and planning what is going to happen. 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. These include daily skills such as shopping, cooking, laundry and cleaning - with tasks 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.
Redlands is situated just outside the centre of Newport and a local shopping centre is within easy walking distance. There is easy access to the M4 motorway and also to the public transport on direct route to the city centre.
Redlands is a detached house located in a residential area on the outskirts of Newport city centre. It was extended a number of years ago and now has the facilities to support seven people. Our facilities include:
- Two large living rooms
- A bright and spacious kitchen dining area
- Four of the bedrooms are en-suite
- Secluded and private garden
- A patio and lawn area with outside lighting
Our garden is secluded and private with space for individuals to grow vegetables during the summer months. Everyone is encouraged and supported to maintain the garden.
We also have a patio and lawn area with outside lighting which provides a pleasant area to enjoy a relaxing evening.
