Willow Brook is an innovative supported housing scheme in Coleraine for people with a learning disability. Willow Brook is situated off Millburn Road, close to the town centre, in a quiet residential area overlooking the River Bann.
The core principles of the scheme include encouraging independent living, with appropriate help and care available where necessary, recognising a person's right to privacy and respect for their dignity all set within a Christian environment. The Home is registered with RQIA who undertake bi-annual inspections. Reports can be viewed on their website www.rqia.org.uk
Willow Brook provides accommodation for nine tenants. Three reside in single bungalow units each with a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. The other six tenants are housed in two larger buildings each comprising three flats with en-suite facilities and closet kitchens, and a large communal lounge and kitchen.
Willow Brook is managed by the Council for Social Witness (responsible for residential services) and Choice Housing Association (responsible for the building).
The United Appeal assists with the funding of the Council of Social Witness, enabling the Council to support the work and Christian witness offered at Willow Brook.
