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.
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.
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.
Set in the local town of Manningtree, this 5 bedded house looks over the river and is within walking distance of local shops and facilities. Acorn vehicles are available if individuals wish to use the onsite facilities.
Acorn Village and Trinity House offer accommodation and support to adults with learning disabilities looking for a long term placement.
We have 7 group homes set on our main site and 1 within the local town of Manningtree. These houses are staffed to provide shared and individual support and may include activities such as personal care, medication administration, assessment and maintenance of risk behaviour, enabling social and educational opportunities, accessing offsite activities and specific support regarding an individual’s health or end of life care.
