Younger Adults Transitions Supported Living Service
Primavera House is a lovely large detached house which is based in Hampshire on the border of Surrey. The supported living service supports 6 young adults with learning disabilities to live as independently as possible in their local community.
This is a transitional service that supports young adults in developing their life skills, and in doing so, helps to nurture their potential and to be active members of their community.
We work in partnership with schools & colleges so that the people we support, continue to achieve their educational potential. We believe that everyone who resides at Primavera House should be positively challenged to maximise their potential. The outcomes that can be achieved are endless.
The property is owned and managed by a private Landlord, and Potens staff provide the care and support to individuals who live at Primavera, through the Domiciliary Care Agency Surrey.
