Welcome to Victoria House
Located near Hull, we are a purpose built centre providing accommodation and support for people with complex and high dependency needs, giving independence and lifestyle choices for adults with physical disabilities.
Victoria House supports people with a range of disabilities including cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida and arthritis, multiple sclerosis and disabilities resulting from accidents or a stroke. We are committed to providing an environment that encourages personal development, confidence and independence, and service users are encouraged to take part in a wide range of social, vocational and recreational activities. As well as providing physical care, our focus at Victoria House is on maintaining and maximising service users' quality of life, therefore giving people real choice, options and control over their lives.

About Victoria House
Victoria House is about one mile from the centre of Hull, with its wide range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities.
There are good connections to national transport routes, with regular train services, an international airport and ferries to Europe. Leeds and York are both within an hour's drive. The seaside attractions of the east coast are nearby.
Victoria House is a modern two storey, purpose-built complex which can support up to 24 people. Each private bedroom has an en suite bathroom and toilet facilities, a lockable front door, call system and use of a hoist if required. Assisted bathrooms are also available.
Fully furnished to a high specification, Victoria House has many communal areas including a dining room, comfortable lounges and a licensed bar and function room, which is often used for parties and discos, to which service users invite families and guests. Service users share a licensed bar, two lounges, a dining room and activities room. Meals are available in the main dining room, with a wide choice of menu and special diets. In addition each floor has a small kitchen for those who wish to self-cater. We are especially proud of our award winning gardens, with seating and raised flower beds which service users can enjoy.
The Disabilities Trust has 30 years' experience in tailoring quality support packages for individuals, to enhance their independence and deliver cost-effective outcomes in a person-centred environment. We recognise that different life experiences need a different provision, and we are continuously adapting and evolving to meet these challenges.
We use assistive technology to promote independence: anything from an adapted kettle through to highly sophisticated, automatic environmental controls and specialist communications aids, which enable people to gain independent living skills and build confidence. We offer a person-centred approach to support and service users are encouraged to take part in a wide range of educational and recreational activities.
Activities and Facilities
Each service user at Victoria House has an individual programme which outlines how independent living skills can be developed or maintained. The programme covers a wide range of activities including cooking, shopping, laundry, personal safety, financial management and IT and forms an integral part of the service users support plan. There is choice to participate in prearranged activities or pursue personal interests, with support from staff. Service users are also able to take part in a number of therapeutic activities, both on and off site, including hydrotherapy, aromatherapy and massage.
The centre runs two specially adapted vehicles, and there are good public transport links to the centre of Hull. Service users enjoy regular trips to the local sports and leisure centre, as well as outings to shows, concerts and sports events.
