April 11, 2017

Here’s a sneak peek into the scrap book that Tamzin has shared from Harvey Lane, evidencing what’s great about their home, the team and success being achieved by individuals who live there.

Harvey lane is a small residential home in the heart of Norwich, Norfolk. Five individuals are supported there by an amazing support team. Colleagues at Harvey Lane all have an incredible aspiration to make the most of everyday and to meet the needs of their supported individuals. In the past couple of months Harvey Lane has put together a plan for regular house trips which take place each Friday. So far, supported individuals have thoroughly enjoyed going to Yarmouth, Cromer and Southwold with many more activities to look forward to, like visiting the Sea Life Centre, Zoo’s and picnics though out the summer.

Harvey Lane asked some of their supported individuals what they liked most about living at Harvey Lane. A young supported individual who has been at Harvey lane for just five months stated that she enjoys going out on house trips with everybody and loves that everybody within the home is like one big family. Another supported individual, said that he enjoys going out into the community with support from the team to buy personal items, having a coffee in the city, in addition to playing Pool and Darts within the home.
