Rehability UK Community

Our service in Ladywood is a complex of thirteen self-contained flats with a management office on site. There is also a hub on site where the service users and can undertake activities or use the space to socialise. The service has been established for many years, and it has a real community feel. The area office is based here.

We have a number of shared supported living homes around Birmingham, supporting adults with Autism, Learning Disabilities and Mental Health. These properties have some shared communal spaces including kitchen, dining, lounge, bathroom and garden space.

Our service in Cradley Heath is a supported living complex, which opened in April 2019. This is a development of nine self-contained flats including 8 one bedded flats and one two bedroomed flat. The complex has been designed to support adults with a primary diagnosis of mental health needs. There is an office on site, and the staff team includes an experienced Team Manager, Team Leader, a number of specialist mental health recovery workers and support workers. We also have a concierge on duty overnight.

Meet the Manager


I have worked within health and social care and started as a support worker supporting individuals with drug and alcohol dependency issues. From there I had worked supporting individuals with mental health diagnosis and had worked my way through the ranks to take over my very first registration. From there I have supported individuals with Autism, mental health, learning disabilities and supported individuals with challenging behaviour. 

What I find most rewarding within the health and social care sector is seeing residents develop and achieve what they set themselves to achieve. I believe that supporting individuals from all walks of life is the most rewarding job of all and it’s a pleasure to work with a dedicated staff team who work tirelessly to support the people we support. 

I am a keen rugby fan and I enjoy taking my dog Milo for long walks in the countryside.
