A large purpose built modern bungalow set within its own grounds and gardens, the service has ten en-suite bedrooms and provides a positive environment.
The team support individuals with very complex needs through their transition into Strawberry Fields and their on-going person centred support plan tailored to their needs.
The focus is on supporting greater independence and inclusion for a meaningful, fulfilling life.
Individuals are encouraged to gain greater confidence with everyday tasks such as cooking, washing and cleaning and help with the maintenance and running of the home. This helps individuals become more independent and as their confidence grows, the team can support them to achieve their goals and pursue new hobbies and interests.
Strawberry Fields also has its own transport to access immediate local amenities and the nearby coast. Social activities and events also take place at the home and visits from family and friends are encouraged.
Close by is a large activity centre with its own trampoline, gym and sensory room which is available to the people we support at Strawberry Fields.

We are 99% compliant across inspectorate bodies, CQC, Ofsted, The Care Inspectorate Wales and The Scottish Care Inspectorate for residential care (Figure stated as at July 2019)
“Across England over 90% of our residential services are currently rated as good and indeed two of our supported living services are rated as outstanding. We felt the inspection was positive and so to receive the rating that we did was disappointing.
We are pleased that the CQC identified areas of practice at Strawberry Fields as being good including; Supported individuals receiving care from a team that knew them well and who were kind, compassionate and respectful, developing positive relationships along with detailed person-centred plans.
Nothing is more important to us than the health and well-being of the individuals we support, and the report recognises that the service is both caring and safe, rating it ‘Good’ in both categories.
We are pleased that CQC identified that Strawberry Fields is caring stating that ‘Relatives were unanimous in their view that people were supported by a kind, caring staff team. We observed staff and people to have built good relationships, based on mutual respect and trust. People's dignity, independence and privacy was promoted and encouraged.’
People supported said that they felt safe living at the service and CQC noted this to be the case, sharing that relatives told them they felt people were safe and well looked after, which was reassuring for them when they did not live close to the home.
Consensus and the team at Strawberry Fields are fully committed to every aspect of the service provided being at a consistently high level and look forward to evidencing the many improvements they have made and continue to make when CQC next inspect the service.”
