Offering 8 newly refurbished self-contained flats, with many of the flats having a number of adaptations for people who may be wheelchair users. It is situated in the centre of Hackney, close to local services and transport links and is only a short distance from Victoria Park and London Fields.

The adapted flat also has a fully accessible kitchen including height adjusted sink, work units and electric hob to enable independence.
Our fully trained staﬀ team is available 24 hours a day to deliver person-centred support packages that are designed to meet the needs of our young people, oﬀering a wide range of tailored support, advice and assistance.
The service oﬀers a core support package that includes shared waking nights and sleepover staﬀ, and day support tailored to individuals need, with both shared hours and one-to-one support available.
