  • Need


    The home is now open and has received its first residents.

    We currently have 6 bedrooms that still need furnishing with specialised equipment, with a cost of £6,000 per room.


    We are currently applying to Trusts and Foundation to ask if they will assist us.

    We would like to ask donors to contact us and we will be pleased to inform you of our latest progress.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To equip Lady Dane Farmhouse to enable all the rooms to be open to those who need caring for.


    » We are currently applying to Trusts and Foundations

    What success will look like

    Success will be...monitored by all of the bedrooms being availalbe for residents

    Aim 2

    To purchase a converted minibus to take residents to essential appointments


    » We have applied to Trusts and Foundations

    What success will look like

    Success will be...monitored by having this minibus on site and using it for its purpose of transporting older learning disabled people to their appointments

  • Impact


    This is the first home in the country to specialise in the older learning disabled person and to offer them a nursing home for life. Respite will also be offered to the public, especially for those will ageing parents who are carers.


    The risks are minimal, the home will not offer more places until funding is in place as the rooms will not be furnished.


    The Chairman will send an annual report to donors.
