Welcome to Victoria House
Located in 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, 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 activities room, as well as a sensory room. We are especially proud of our award winning gardens, with seating and raised flower beds which service users can enjoy.
The Disabilities Trust has 39 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.
Each service user at Victoria House has an individual programme which outlines how their independent living skills can be developed and maintained. The programme covers a wide range of daily living activities including cooking, shopping and financial management. There is choice to participate in prearranged activities and pursue personal interests, including swimming, motivational therapy and Flex. Service users are also able to take part in a number of therapeutic activities, including hydrotherapy, aromatherapy and massage.
The centre has a specially adapted vehicle, 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.
