About Douglas Road

Douglas Road is set within a residential street and close to local amenities including bus and train links.  The home is a spacious detached house in garden with extensive outdoor space for activities or just having fun.  There are five bedrooms a modern kitchen and large lounge.

Close by is Torkington Park where there are tennis courts, skateboard ramp, gym equipment and where a carnival and fun fair visit every year. Within easy reach is Lyme Park and Bramhall Park both with historic buildings and grounds.

The local town is less than 10 minutes’ drive and this has a multiplex cinema complex, swimming pool and museum, there are two large shopping areas, a local produce market and plenty of places to eat.  The trains and buses run at regular intervals to these locations providing some independence for our young people.

In the local town of Hazel Grove there are many places to eat both restaurants, takeaways and as all young people love McDonalds and KFC.  The home prides itself on planning the weekly menu, sitting down together to eat and encouraging a varied cuisine prepared by staff and young people after helping with the shopping!

Douglas Road also arranges other activities further afield during holidays and weekends as well as activities at home such as quiz, culture, and movie evenings.  Young people can play on their x box, computer or PlayStation and we will support any hobby or artistic talent!  We want our young people to enjoy their spare time at home and try a wide variety of activities and take up hobbies.

We want to ensure that our young people have positive relationships and feel part of the local community by joining local clubs and meeting friends outside of the home.  It is important to us that young people have links outside of the home in a safe and meaningful way.  We also offer support with their family visits and a road to independence.
