St Johns Road

A warm welcome to St Johns Road

Our spacious, comfortable and purpose-built flats are ideal for disabled people who require support to live as independently as possible.

We have six self-contained one bedroom flats, each with a bedroom, bathroom, lounge and kitchen. Three flats are situated on the ground floor, and are adapted for people with limited mobility. Each flat has a Tunstall link system in place, for tenants to use in an emergency if no staff are present. Shared facilities include a communal lounge, garden and laundry. 

St Johns Rd is located in Arlesey — a small town with a range of local shops, pubs, takeaways, a library and a doctor’s surgery. We are also within a short drive of Stevenage, Letchworth, Hitchin and Bedford, with good local bus routes to these towns.

Nicola’s story

Nicola Goodwin‘My name is Nicola and I’ve lived at St Johns Road for 15 years. I have my own flat here. It’s really nice living in the block with other people. The staff are lovely and great to chat to. 

‘I work at the local Mind charity chop and also at the British Heart Foundation charity shop in Hitchin. I get the bus to both jobs by myself.

‘All in all I’m pretty independent — I feel I can do what I like around the area. I love going to the cinema, and bowling. The staff help me with ideas and help me choose things to do.’
