Supported Living

The Rossendale Trust provides Supported Living care to adults with learning and physical disabilities, in purpose built apartments in Sutton and Macclesfield, and houses in Buxton. We aim to create an environment where everyone is encouraged to reach their full potential. Changes in our care model,from residential care to supported living, has enabled our tenants to make real choices in their lives, develop in confidence and enjoy increasing independence.


The Rossendale Trust also runs ‘Oakwood’. Oakwood is a place where adults with learning disabilities can come, Monday to Friday, to socialise and learn new skills in a friendly and welcoming environment. Activity groups are run in half day sessions, at a cost of £15 per session.
