Time for Change

Change can be both exciting and challenging, and for disabled residents transitioning to a new facility, it often represents a significant life transition. This journey can be filled with a mix of emotions, but with the right support and mindset, it can lead to a fresh start filled with new opportunities for growth, community, and comfort.

Minstead Trust Relocates

In July 2023 the individuals supported by our partner Minstead Trust, moved from their headquarters, Minstead Lodge, to a brand-new home in Lyndhurst. The new facility provides care 24 hours a day. Supporting the residents with everyday life and helping them make informed choices about how they live.

Minstead Trust’s residential house in Lyndhurst is the perfect place for people with learning disabilities to be supported to live an independent life. The house is home to up to 9 adults, there is a beautiful garden to explore with a fish-filled pond.

The house is a stone’s throw away from Lyndhurst’s shops and cafes, giving the residents the opportunity to be more independent. Enabling them to think about what activities will best help them to achieve their goals.
