St Peter’s Row
In the terrace of three houses, accommodating 15 residents, we have a happy and secure environment in which a small group of people with learning difficulties can achieve the full development of their individual interests and abilities with maximum involvement in the life and work of the local community.
"We have no concerns for Beth as her keyworker is so caring and aware of Beth's needs and anticipates possible concerns. We thank Jill and Denis every day for creating such a wonderful establishment".

Our residents enjoying the environment at St Peter's Row, their home and the outings organised by staff.
St Peter's Row accepts residents from the age of 18, acknowledging the importance of the continuance of learning through work and leisure after the end of formal schooling.
We aim to get the balance right between the protection our residents need and the independence they can achieve, providing training for those able to progress to independent living and a long term home for those unable to take this step.
Some residents attend college or a day service and many choose from a range of Day Service activities on offer at Scotts.
Residents are also encouraged to participate in activities aimed at developing their daily living skills and furthering their independence such as menu planning, cooking, washing, budgeting, numeracy, literacy and communication skills.
All residents have an action plan encouraging them to achieve skills at their own pace. Goals are set and reviewed at regular intervals, giving individuals more independence and greater self-esteem.
Our residents also enjoy an active social life in the local community, visiting the theatre and cinemas, local restaurants, swimming, bowling alleys, etc. Many of them have joined clubs for other people with disabilities.
Scotts is set within the beautiful Kent countryside. The peaceful environment and attractive gardens support the health and happiness of our residents.
Good community relationships provide much-needed support to our services. Here you can see volunteer staff from a local organisation, Fidelity, working on the patio at St Peter's Row.
