Conkers is a homely 7 bed residential setting for Adults who have Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities. Our adults have very active social lives and enjoy attending the pub or cafe for nice meals, going to the park to feed the ducks, and attending sporting and music events. We have an on site hydrotherapy pool and can often support our adults for a dip in the pool, or a bounce on the trampoline. We even go rock climbing!

At Hollybank, we have a team of Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists, who provide individual support not only to the adults, but to the staff team to allow them to build their skills and knowledge as part of their role. Our adults enjoy attending Therapy sessions, such as Hydrotherapy, Rebound Therapy and Communication Cafes with their assistive technology.

  • A commitment to providing quality and person-centred care.
