The Regent Road family are recruiting!

Regent Road is a 7-bed supported living service near Morecambe! We are a five minute walk from Morecambe Promenade where we visit often to enjoy fish and chips or an ice cream or even dip your toes in the sea! We are also a 5 minute walk to Morecambe fc and we've been known to enjoy a game or two down at the football stadium! We like to take a bus ride to Lancaster city centre to catch up with friends over coffee and of course go shopping!

The individuals we support here at Regent Road are always busy and love getting up to new things! Katie can often be found winning a round or two at the local bowling alley! Archie loves drawing, scrabble, dominoes and computer games and Nic loves a pamper and getting her nails done! We all love heading out into the community, whether that be to go swimming, visit the football club, the local library or to watch the next best movies in the cinema!
