We also organise regular trips including to the theatre, the cinema, bowling, museums and sports events. You’ll have the chance to be social, get creative or enjoy exercise – you choose.

Boccia at Greenhill House

Greenhill is home to the Boccia England Registered Club. Boccia is a Paralympic sport similar to boules, developed specifically for disabled people to play. Our team plays in several leagues and competitions. It’s a great opportunity to learn the sport and do some exercise.

Bam’s story

Bam, resident at Greenhill House‘My name’s Bam and I’ve lived here for a couple of years. I do miss my family, living here, but the care is all good here. The staff are really friendly.

‘There’s also plenty to do — I like scrabble, and I like playing chess as well. I play downstairs with anyone who wants to play. I’m also a DJ, and I have two different decks here. And I have my PlayStation 2. 

‘I have graffiti walls in my room. The staff were really supportive about that.I did the design on a canvas and my friend did it on the wall.

‘Before coming here I was living in squats, and got into drugs a bit. It’s better for me living here; I feel much better not doing that kind of stuff any more.’
