Manager's description

“Bishopsfield Court has a good reputation in the local community and enjoys close links with several nearby schools, with a number of joint activities taking place between residents and pupils. The nearest bus stop is directly outside the court and provides regular services into the centre of Peterborough just a few miles away. The main line rail service from Peterborough runs from London Kings Cross to Edinburgh, allowing easy access to the entre rail network. The court has friendly and supportive staff and a wide range of facilities for residents including two welcoming lounges, a guest room, hair salon, large car park and dining room. The onsite caterers are also happy to supply food for private parties and celebrations on request. The sensory gardens at Bishopsfield are easily accessible by wheelchair. The gazebo, surrounded by mature flowering shrubs, provides a pleasant place to sit and relax and enjoy the fresh air. Green-fingered residents are welcome to join in with gardening and there are numerous pots and a raised garden where they can plant and maintain their own flowers and vegetables.

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”
