Pocklington Court is a supported housing centre for people of all ages with sight loss, offering a combination of secure, self-contained accommodation and practical support from staff. It is run by Thomas Pocklington Trust. They offer four different levels of support and residents only pay for the support they receive.
Support staff are on hand to help with a wide range of tasks, and may help with:
- Reading and correspondence, paying bills etc
- Making appointments and contacting people
- Accessing education, training and work
- Learning basic skills around the home
- Orientation and accessing support to get out and about
- Support with medication
- Welfare benefits support and advice
The accommodation at Pocklington Court is fully self-contained and designed for people with sight loss - there are 52 single-person studio flats, and 12 two-person flats. Each flat is fitted with an alarm call system linked to Pocklington staff between the hours of 8.00am to 6.00pm and to a third party emergency response service from 6.00pm to 8.00 am.
There is a small but well stocked on-site shop means residents can buy essential everyday items.
Social events are organised by well trained volunteers for residents who would like to participate. Some of these take place in the lounge and some are organised as outings. Large, accessible landscaped gardens with a summer house and sensory garden provide a safe outdoor environment and walking area, and a dog pen is provided for the use of guide dogs.
