Independent Lifestyles moves to Kent

Two new supported living services are being developed in Ashford, Kent. The final touches and inevitable garage conversions are currently underway, once complete the services will add further 9 beds to the Independent Lifestyles supported living portfolio. This new service will be for individuals with autism and/or learning difficulties. Old Orchard is a spacious five-bedded home nestling at the back of a quiet cul-de-sac in the Singleton area and Grasmere is a modern four-bedded home in Kennington. The service manager, Rob Bunting took up his post on 10 April and is currently establishing ties with local commissioners and has just started to look for support staff to work across both homes.

If you would like more information about the homes or working for Independent Lifestyles in Kent please call Rob on 01233 643330 or e-mail
