About Park Lodge

Park Lodge is set within a residential street and close to local amenities including bus and train links. The home is a spacious detached house in grounds with extensive outdoor space and is next to a large playing field. There are five bedrooms a modern kitchen and large lounge, there is also a Garden House where young people can meet their friends for a chat, watch movies, listen to music, or arrange activities such as pamper days.

Within easy reach is Bruntwood Park where young people can enjoy bike rides or use the BMX cycle track. Also close by is Torkington Park where there are tennis courts, skateboard ramp, gym equipment and where a carnival and fun fair visit every year.

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.

Park Lodge 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.
