Chertsey is a registered residential home for four female adults with Learning Disabilities and individual complex needs in Twickenham.
Chertsey Road, our residential service in Richmond, is undergoing a makeover; we are currently in the process of building a new four bedroom bungalow on the grounds. It is being designed around the needs of the four ladies currently living at Chertsey Road as the current building is not going to be able to meet their longer-term needs. The new build will enable the ladies to continue living in a safe environment and lead independent lives with the support from the Chertsey Road team. They will also have the opportunity to personalise the bungalow and be involved in decorating and choosing colours/furniture for their new bedrooms as part of the building process.
Once the bungalow has been completed, the main house at Chertsey will then be redeveloped into a supported living service, which will allow us to offer further support to individuals who wish to lead independent lives.
