What We Do - Adult Services
Services For Adults With Learning Disabilities

Services for adults with learning disabilitiesCatholic Care continues to provide a range of Residential and Supported Living Services for People with Learning Disabilities. As people's needs change we try and respond.

Currently, we provide support for 45 people, 25 who live in residential homes and 20 people who live as tenants in their own home, in Leeds, North Yorkshire and Kirklees, who have varying levels of abilities/disabilities. Each of the homes has a different and unique character, but we hope that all have a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere.

Catholic Care has always been committed to valuing people and the service offered reflects the needs of that particular client group. Our staff teams are very committed, adaptable and able to respond to needs as they arise.

People with leaning difficulties have the right to live in a manner and in circumstances as similar as possible to those enjoyed by the rest of society. Principals such as privacy, dignity, independence, choice, control, responsible risk taking, the preservation of individual right and self-fulfilment, provide the basis for the services we deliver.

All our services are based on the individual needs of the people and the creation of social, leisure, employment and educational opportunities. People with learning disabilities want a real say in where they live, what they should do and who looks after them.

Our homes are located at:

East Leeds (Supported Living)
