Stanley Grange

Stanley Grange is a small intentional community for adults with learning disabilities and complex needs, nestled between Preston and Blackburn. 

We have 7 dwellings; houses, flats, bungalows and cottages (some shared, some single occupancy) with a community hall and gardens, set around a lovely ‘village green’.  We are registered with CQC to provide accommodation for up to 42 people, split between residential and supported living homes. 

Since 1st October 2015, the estate & buildings at Stanley Grange have been owned by Stanley Grange Community Association, a charity set up in 2014 by the families of people living there with the express intention of saving this thriving community from closure.

We are working hard to make Stanley Grange a first-rate place to live for adults with disabilities:  not only modern, comfortable accommodation, with plenty of social opportunities but also improving the community centre, and providing activities on and off Stanley Grange that providing meaningful things to do, training / volunteering opportunities and supported employment.  Although Stanley Grange is already well-embedded in the local community, we are looking to strengthen our ties with our neighbours and involve them further in the activities at Stanley Grange, as well as offering daytime opportunities for activity & support to other vulnerable adults from across Lancashire.

We are working in partnership with Future Directions, CIC (a community interest company), who provide all of the personal care and support to the residents.

We are taking part in The Big Christmas Give Click here to donate. Every £ you donate (up to £1000) during the week 28th November to the 5th December, will be matched by our Pledgers Eric Wright Group. Every £ counts. Please help us by speading the word to all your friends and colleagues. 

 

 

A word from our supporter, Maxine Peake:

 

"I am absolutely delighted that Stanley Grange has been saved. It is a remarkable place that provides a safe, happy, purposeful and fulfilling community for adults and young people with  learning disabilities to live. My late mother Glenys worked at Stanley Grange and she had many happy years there with the wonderful residents and staff. It's such fantastic news that it will be able to continue as an invaluable resource for its current and future residents to enjoy. I am proud to be a supporter of Stanley Grange."
