Facilities and Local Amenities
Sunnybank is broken down into a main house and an annex. The main house supports 6 people and the annex supports 2 people. People can move through into the annex when they become more independent and this is often a ‘stepping stone’ to living independently in supported housing.
We have a garden at both the residential and annex side with benches/chairs/tables for people to spend time in and have BBQ/parties. The garden has plants, seating areas and people can spend time playing football and putting swimming pools up to relax and have fun in.
We have a quiet room with a sofa, table/chairs, stereo etc. where people can go and relax when they want some time alone. We have communal lounges with TV, DVD, Computer, CD player etc. in them, where people can interact with each other, the people we employ or alone. People often use the computer to browse the internet, play games and listen to music on YouTube. There are also sleep facilities, enabling sleep-over team members to accompany the waking night team, ensuring that wherever required people have 24-hour staff support.
Sunnybank has good local amenities including shops, eateries, library and a local community supports and leisure centre. Sunnybank is close to the Xscape leisure complex as well as the Junction 32 shopping outlet. Sunnybank have their own company vehicle as well as having great transport links to all major towns and cities which have lots more to offer.
