St Albans Community

Get to know us

St Albans is a bustling and vibrant city close to London.

It offers the people we support the opportunity to be part of a wider community that offers many leisure activities, it’s rich in history too with Roman remains and medieval architecture.

Here at St Albans, we currently support almost 40 people within a supported living environment, our accommodation ranges from single person flats to larger shared houses. The community has grown steadily over the last few years, this will continue into the future also.

The introduction of a new Positive Behaviour Support role to the community has provided the opportunity for staff to be supporting individuals through a Positive Behaviour Support approach to ensure consistent support for the individuals in the community.

The focus on positive support allows for the enrichment of individuals to have a say in how we continue to meet their needs. The overall aim of Positive Behaviour Support is to improve the quality of a person’s life and that of the people around them. PBS provides the right support for a person, their family and friends to help people lead a meaningful life and learn new skills without unnecessary restrictions.

We support people to access a wide variety of activities within the local community from Judo classes and Zumba, to swimming, football and chess clubs.

We arrange a variety of activities within the St Albans community. Many take place in the community hall, Michaelmas Hall. Activities include film nights, table tennis, cooking sessions, arts and crafts, singing group, discos, community meetings and meals. We work in partnership with other local organisations to maximise the opportunities we can offer people to lead a life of opportunity

The Studio

The Studio workshop is a vital part of the St Albans community. Since opening its doors over a decade ago we’ve worked with many different techniques such as jewellery making, weaving, animation, ceramics and different ways of designing and printing.

Working in the studio also offers a great opportunity to form strong friendships, where ideas can be brought and shared together.

Cafe on the Corner

We also have a thriving Cafe in St Albans where the people we support develop skills and experience in all aspects of hospitality. Visit Cafe on the Corner, for fabulous food served in vibrant surroundings.

Our Café is a hive of activity offering the people we support in the community and those in the wider community the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge in a catering environment, the public love it too. Do call in to visit!
