Princes Street is a specialist residential home for adults with either a primary diagnosis of mental illness and/or an associated learning disability. The home is ideally located for safe, structured and gradual reintegration into the community, along with good transports links to Cardiff city centre.
The aim of the home is to provide a transition from a more secure environment to a community placement. The support team will work with the individual to enable them to move into either supported living or more independent accommodation.
Focus on Safety
Our absolute priority is to make sure we operate safe and effective services 24/7 and that all staff understand what is required of them to make that happen. Click here to read more.
Princes Street provides a wide range of person-centred activities, both within the home and at external venues. A well-established day care programme is operational, with individuals involved in training for daily living skills including cooking, washing and other domestic chores, arts and crafts and gardening.
Princes Street liaises with families, community organisations, social services departments and purchasing authorities to support person-centred care planning, and ensures that the social, emotional, cultural and spiritual needs of all individuals are taken into account.
