Anchor House and Haven House are located on the seafront and all are close to the town centre and local amenities. We provide opportunities for our residents to participate in a wide variety of community based activities including college courses, employment and social interests.

Our team of experts

The Whitby Scheme is staff­ed 24 hours a day by experienced and dedicated staff­ who are selected for the qualities and skills they bring to achieve the positive outcomes the people we support require. 1:1 support is available if needed and if identified.

All sta­ff receive ongoing extensive training in a wide range of subjects and are supported by Priory Adult Care’s team of in-house quality development advisors who are experts in their fields.

The Whitby Scheme has solid relationships in place with the local community mental health team and the learning disability service, and works in close partnership with them.
