Riverbank is located in central Hull which makes it easy for people to get to local shops, use transport links, explore leisure and employment opportunities. In this way, each resident can start to build self-confidence, as well as their interests and connections in the local community.
Riverbank offers purpose-built, comfortable and clean facilities. The service opened in 2012 and everything from the fixtures and fittings to the facilities is of an exceptional standard.
All bedrooms are en-suite, apartments and independence flats are self-contained, and have communal areas for socialising. This clever design helps residents to start moving towards a life back in the community.
The fact that our residents stay with us throughout their recovery, moving between the different living environments, means that we can ensure they receive an unrivalled consistency of support. Many will probably have spent some time being transferred between other services, so Riverbank offers them invaluable stability. Here they can settle, develop long term friendships with other people and by linking into external agencies, can develop and maintain lasting relationships in the wider community.
Riverbank is also close to local amenities, organisations and companies. This gives residents access to as many opportunities to learn and develop as possible, including colleges, clubs, gyms and sport/activities clubs. We even have our own Riverbank allotment. Our own communal hub area also helps to create a community atmosphere where service users can get to know each other, relax and develop crucial social skills.
