Very close to the beach, the house has a very friendly, homely feel and lots of natural daylight. Aldeburgh offers a safe, supportive, person centred setting.

The service has eight large single bedrooms – seven of which are en-suite, a pleasant, bright lounge and sunny garden. It is also wheelchair accessible so is suitable for people who may have additional physical disabilities or mobility issues.

With a caring, dedicated team the focus is on supporting individuals to live their life in the way they want to, helping them achieve their goals and aspirations.

Within walking distance of the beach and close to local amenities, individuals are encouraged to be involved in the local community and to participate in activities of their choice. Some people are supported in attending the local college and seeking local work placements.

Life at Aldeburgh House has a real social feel. There are regular activities, BBQs, events and lunches and family and friends are always welcome to attend. Regular trips are also arranged and there is a minibus on site. There is real encouragement to have a role to play in the running of the service and improve daily living skills at the same time – such as shopping, cooking for others, being involved with events and doing domestic chores. This aids confidence, self esteem and social interaction.
