We began supporting young adults with learning disabilities in 1949 as Eastbourne & District Mencap.
Our purpose is to support, empower and IMPROVE the quality of life of the people who use our services. Eastbourne Mencap strive to enable people to have greater independence and opportunities to meet their hopes, dreams and aspirations and to actively involve them as far as practically possible in making decisions over their day to day life and future.
Our ethos and values are the foundation of everything we do.
Our passionate, dedicated staff team provide a personalised service, focused on the individual’s needs, continuously monitoring our approach to ensure that our progressive and personal development is striving for an excellent and outstanding service. We use award winning electronic technology to record everything in accordance with current CQC requirements.
Eastbourne Mencap have 3 registered specialised residential homes, providing support to adults with a range of disabilities.
Each home has a Registered Manager and a staff team that are committed to ensuring that people who use our service maximise their independence, take an active role within the service and encourage and support people to participate in the wider community.
As an organisation we are committed to be innovative in our approach to ensure that we work in partnership with other key organisations. Our support staff strive to ensure that a safe, diverse and person-centred quality of life is provided.
At The Hive we offer a range of activities and projects. We work in partnership with local organisations within our community. We support people to achieve their dreams and ambitions.
Our aim is to support people to gain skills during our varied needs assessed workshops to ensure that everyone that participates remains engaged and fulfilled. Our workshops are person centre led by the people that use our service.
Our vision is to build on local community links to enable our day centre users to take an active role within our community.
Our workshops encompass Asdan courses, which enable us to provide engaging programmes and qualifications that equip adults with the necessary skills for learning, work and life.
Holmworth is a two-bedroom bungalow. The tenants at Holmworth are encouraged and supported to lead an independent life that promotes choice and empowerment. Staff are able to offer assistance with shopping, cooking, finances, emotional support and accessing facilities in the community.
