The Oaks and Woodcroft is made up of two bungalows, each supporting up to six people. Each person we support has their own bedroom, which they are encouraged to personalise to their own tastes, with any required assistance provided.
The bungalows share a large garden to the rear of the properties and there is car parking to the front. There is also an area where people can grow their own vegetables.
A range of activities
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.
We often go for meals and drinks out, and attend coffee mornings. Within the service we continually and consistently promote the development of social skills, independent living and personal responsibility. These include daily skills such as shopping, cooking, doing laundry and cleaning, and tasks are dependent upon each individual's ability. The people who live here are very proud of their home as they have so much involvement in creating it.
The Oaks and Woodcroft is situated in the village of Mattishall, 15 miles west of Norwich city centre and five miles from Dereham. Mattishall has a post office, a medical centre, a pharmacy, a public house, four hairdressers, two small grocery stores, a butchers, and five churches of different denominations.
