Our Homes - Lower Lodge

Belview Lodge is a home, not an institutionStatement of Purpose - DownloadLower Lodge has recently received its annual key Ofsted inspection and has achieved a ‘Good' overall rating once again. This is the fifth successive year that the home has been rated ‘Good' or Outstanding'.

Cooking at Lower LodgeOur current residents, along with the staff, are extremely proud of this achievement and again, this is testament to the staff at the home for the incredible care that they provide to all of our residents.

Lots of activities and day trips are planned for the summer holidays, including, excursions to the sea-side, Alton Towers and the local adventure farm. Lots of relaxing is also scheduled by the Young People after such a taxing year at school.

One resident is looking forward to sixth form in September and we know that he will do well!

Future plans include some very challenging outward bound activities including climbing Snowdon and Scafell Pike.
