Type of property
Abingdon is a residential service ready to welcome new people and support them in leading an independent life.
This beautiful, detached Victorian house has a large extension, nine-bedrooms and a kitchen, three living rooms, a dining room, a laundry room and three bathrooms - one is an ensuite with a shower cubicle, the other two are communal and have shower cubicles too.

People also like to visit Liverpool, which has numerous museums and art galleries, Liverpool ONE Shopping Centre, the Liverpool Empire, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and Imagine That Science and Discovery Centre. And we’re spoilt for choice for beautiful walks - the docks, Toxteth Park, Wavertree Botanic Gardens and Sefton Park are just a small selection.
Living at this service
Abingdon is ready to welcome someone aged between 20 and 60 who enjoys a busy atmosphere. The people we support here have complex needs including autism, mental health conditions and learning disabilities. The house is always busy with lots of noise.
At Abingdon people choose how they spend their time, enjoying going to the day centre twice a week, walking, watching sport, swimming, bingo, gaming, volunteering, gardening, shopping, socialising, going to the cinema, listening to music, watching television, and being in the community.
Day trips to Blackpool and the Christmas markets are favourites. People often go bowling as a group.
“At Abingdon, each day is different. Every person we support is an individual and the staff work hard to support everyone with their own goals. The atmosphere is busy, homely and fun. The longest resident has been here for twenty five years so it is a real community.” Manager, Abingdon
