A stunning environment and active lives...
Glenwood is home to eight people who live with complex learning disabilities and also offers short-term respite support to five people.
Many of the people supported at the home and their support staff are dedicated fans of the Super League rugby league club, Widnes Vikings. People supported at Glenwood often watch the club with their team and love the atmosphere of the big crowds. They also enjoy participating in weekly accessible sports sessions with the Vikings Community Team, as part of a special partnership that we have developed with the club.
In 2016, Glenwood had a significant refurbishment - creating a warmer and more accessible environment. To celebrate their passion for the Vikings, we created a stunning themed room in the home that celebrates the trumphs of the club and their favourite players. The people we support were thrilled when star player, Alex Gerrard, visited them to officially open this on National Learning Disability Day.
