At Cherry Trees we help people to build their skills and independence – and to enjoy themselves – by providing a mix of learning and leisure. Everyone has their own programme with individual goals. Our overall aim is to encourage people to become more self-sufficient, so each person has a timetable at home which we create with them to reflect their needs and likes. It includes home chores such as shopping, cooking and independent living skills, and social activities in the local community such as visiting clubs, pubs, restaurants, theatre, cinema and sports.
Everyone has a full programme of day activities that can include an extremely wide range of opportunities such as vocational skills training at our Lynx resource centre, supported employment, or further education at a local college.
At Cherry Trees itself we offer a range of activities including art and craft, music, games and puzzles, cooking and IT. We also have exercise equipment, a trampoline and table tennis.
"Staff provided person-centred support by listening to people and engaging them at every opportunity. Staff were very kind and caring and people using the service were calm and comfortable in the presence of staff."
