Welcome to Jane Percy House

Located in Cramlington, Northumberland, we provide accommodation and support for people with complex and high dependency needs, giving independence and lifestyle choices for adults with physical disabilities. It forms part of the nationwide network of disability support services provided by The Disabilities Trust.

Jane Percy 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. As well as providing physical care, it is committed to ensuring that people have control over their lives and are treated with dignity and respect at all times.

We offer independent living skills training programmes, either at local colleges or within the centre. For those who are actively seeking to move from a residential to a community based setting, support is offered according to individual requirements.

Quality services

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.

Our commitment to cost-effectiveness and innovative management practices ensures that we deliver excellent value for money, while consistently driving down costs over the long term.

Many service users have moved through our continuum to at-home (domiciliary) care, and our numerous success stories demonstrate that this is possible for anyone, regardless of the severity of their disabilities.

Our Philosophy

Jane Percy House is committed to providing an environment that encourages personal development, confidence and independence. 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 is on maintaining and maximising service users' quality of life, therefore giving people real choice, options and control over their lives and our numerous success stories demonstrate that this is possible for anyone, regardless of the severity of their disabilities.

We ensure that any complaints are listened to and responded to within given timescales, and regularly review and monitor our service to ensure effectiveness and quality. Each person is fully involved in all decisions that may affect them.

We support and encourage service users to live as independently as possible, without a 'one-size-fits-all' approach. We also use technology to promote independence - anything from an adapted kettle through to highly sophisticated, automatic environmental controls and specialist communications aids, all of which enable people to gain independent living skills and build confidence. We feel that it is important to use local knowledge and expertise, and therefore have close links with primary care teams and foster relationships to share best practice.
