No.3 Lavender Fields
Welcome to No. 3 Lavender Fields
No. 3 Lavender Fields is a supported living service for disabled adults which focuses on transition to independent living. We support individuals to build on existing skills, learn new ones and move towards independent living in their community or suitable accommodation of their choice.
Facilities for you
The people who live here have a wide range of disabilities and varying needs. Some individuals come to us after leaving school or college, while others may be experiencing a new disability and require support to develop the skills they need to live independently.
We have six purpose built self-contained flats which can be adapted to suit your individual needs. You’ll also have access to communal areas such as a lounge and laundry room. We’re in a great location, within easy reach of the town centre.

‘I’m Steve and I’ve lived at No.3 Lavender Fields for two years.
‘When I first moved here I was feeling quite depressed and low in confidence. For a couple of months I didn’t really want to do anything. But the staff and the people living here have been absolutely fantastic.
‘They’ve really helped me through and they’ve got me to a place where I’m really, really happy and confident, and I’m doing all kinds of stuff that I want to do.
‘I love sport. Recently I saw Anthony Joshua win his first world boxing title at the O2 Arena in London, and I went to an England v Wales rugby match at Twickenham.
‘My independence is really important to me, and I’m confident travelling on buses and trains on my own.
‘All my life I’ve had people saying to me ‘you can’t do that because you’re disabled’. But I’m all about breaking down barriers and showing that you can do it.’
