You’ll have the chance to be social, get creative or enjoy exercise — you choose. We encourage people to take part but there’s no pressure.

Group activities aren’t for everyone and you might just want to do things on your own. If so, we can help. If you need support, one option is to find a volunteer to come along with you.

Whatever activities you’d like to do, you can always talk to one of our team about the different choices available to you.

Wendy's Story

Wendy, a resident at The Grange‘My name's Wendy and I've lived at the Grange for nearly eight years.

‘I really like the set up here. There are individual units for five or six people and it really feels like a little family — it’s just that extra touch.

‘I’ve got quite involved in campaigning on local issues with Leonard Cheshire Disability’s campaigns team since I’ve been here. We’ve managed to get quite a lot of improvements such as redoing pedestrian crossings and improving the camber on the pavement just up the road.

‘The staff are really helpful and they're very friendly and supportive here. If you say you want to do something or go somewhere they will always try and organise it for you.

‘When I first became disabled I thought life stopped. But being here gives you the opportunity to do the things you want to do.’
