Specialism: Adults with a learning disability, and accompanying diagnosis such as epilepsy, visual impairment and behavioural and emotional difficulties.
Being good neighbours is so important to the people with learning difficulties who live at Bradwell House in Hythe that they invited all their neighbours to join them on Saturday (11 June) for a celebratory garden party and barbecue to mark the 90th birthday of HRH Elizabeth II.
Service manager Maria said: “We all enjoy playing an active role in the local community so we invited lots of the people who live near us, including the owners of the corner shop and people we know from the local pub, and were delighted that our invitations were so warmly received.
“The people we support have had such a great time planning and preparing for our garden party, and they certainly enjoyed themselves with their neighbours, friends and family members on the day.
“At the suggestion of one of the gents who live with us, we also sent an invitation to the Queen herself, but regretfully she was otherwise engaged.”
Offering 24-hour residential accommodation for 10 people with learning difficulties, Bradwell House occupies a quiet neighbourhood of Hythe, just over a mile inland from the sea-front.
Maria said: “Our aim is always to help the people we support live life to the full, so they make the most of local education services and work placements, as well as a wide variety of clubs and activities such as horse-riding and trips to the local pub and tearooms.”
