At Emery Court, people choose how they spend their time. Trips to the coast and tourist attractions are favourites.
“At Emery Court the people we support can come and go as they please, with staff to keep them safe. The community is very accepting of the service. People find it a great place to develop new skills and independence, usually for the first time in their life. People are very proud to have their own tenancy. In the summer people come together to do lots of activities to raise money for charities. This involves families and the local community joining us for BBQs, fun runs and other activities.” Manager, Emery Court
