Located in Mistley, Manningtree, Essex, we offer two models of care and accommodation.
Both services strive to maintain both the individual and collective needs of adults with a learning disability, empowering and supporting them to realise their full potential in creating a fulfilling, satisfying lifestyle unique to their needs. Autonomy, self-determination and confidence are encouraged alongside privacy, dignity and self-direction.
Anyone living at Acorn Village will be encouraged to play a larger role in making their own decisions and living a life they choose regardless of disability or varying levels of communication.
Our Care Philosophy: People First, Disability Second is our philosophy with ‘Life is For Living’ our motto.
Every individual, whatever their disability, is encouraged to follow their dreams and are supported to be as independent as physically possible.
What we do: We offer high quality care and accommodation to adults with learning disabilities.
Within two models of care, residential and supported living services, we can provide support to meet a number of needs within large or small care packages. Our day service provision is popular amongst Acorn Village residents and tenants but is also used by clients who visit and take part in workshops on a termly basis.
Family First: Acorn Village only exists due to the families of children with learning disabilities determination to build a brighter future for their loved ones as they became adults. This family ethos is just as applicable today as it was back in 1975, with relatives of residents and tenants at Acorn Village still providing a huge support to the charity.
