Manager's description

“Leonard Houlden Court is set back from the road, in a residential area. It is a quiet, peaceful and secure place to live, even with the various activities going on. There is a range of shops along with a bus stop to town opposite. We have our own gardens, with a patio area from the communal lounge.

Our Court Manager Service is an important and integral part of Housing & Care 21’s approach to supporting our residents. It is designed to offer support and security to the court and those residents on court who need it. The service is about promoting and encouraging individuals to maintain their independence in their own home.

Our Managers are also responsible for the day to day running of the court including looking after the Health & Safety, property management and resident engagement”
