Located in Preston, Lancashire, The Oaks (formerly part of Craegmoor) is a specialist residential service for up to six adults with autism and learning disabilities. We provide a safe and supportive environment where individuals can progress to lead a more independent and fulfilling life.
The people that live here are supported using a person-centred approach, providing a package of care and support that meets the individual’s goals and aspirations. We understand that each person has different needs, interests and hobbies, which is why personal input is so important. Our aim is to deliver a high quality service that enables people to maximise their independence.

The Oaks is run by an experienced manager, who is supported by a team of trained support workers. We believe in a multidisciplinary approach to care and support, which is why we work closely with other professionals including social workers, psychiatrists, podiatrists and opticians. Our staff team has significant expertise in supporting people with autism and learning disabilities.
