Cambridge Community Services
Cambridge Community Services provides supported living to young adults living at Orchard Park Flats in Cambridge.
Cambridge Community Services offers disabled adults the opportunity to live an independent lifestyle and the chance to develop and practice independent living skills. Individual support is also provided.
We aim to provide you with the support and opportunities you need to lead a fulfilling lifestyle by offering a range of services which are tailored to your needs. You’ll be in control of your support and enabled to make choices and develop your independence. We’ll work alongside you, and the other people in your life, to make this happen. Together, we’ll develop a support plan around the things you want to do, with a focus on what you’d like to achieve.
Our services provide high quality, person centred support to adults in the community and at home. We train our staff thoroughly to provide a high quality tailored and flexible support for people with a range of physical disabilities, learning disabilities and complex health needs.
What we provide is different for each customer, based on their needs and wishes. We support our customers to live independently and customers have the freedom to organise and arrange their own schedules. We can support customers to learn and develop skills. For example:
- planning holidays and arranging day trips
- setting and achieving their goals
- regularly accessing the community, such as the cinema, bowling and art classes
- meeting health needs and attending appointments
Every customer has a unique support plan. This can include both regular, daily and ‘as required’ activities, such as support with personal care, meal preparation, shopping, access to sports, volunteering and leisure activities. For example, activities customers have enjoyed in the past include swimming, art therapy and music therapy, aromatherapy, physiotherapy, tai chi, studying at college, beauty treatments, parties and meals out, days out, garden parties, visits to see friends and family, dream holidays like Disneyland Paris, skiing in Norway, cruise around the Med to name a few.
Customers are encouraged to be involved in making decisions about how the service is run. If the customer wishes, friends and family are encouraged to be involved.
Cambridge Community Services consists of five flats within Orchard Park. Each flat has two bedrooms, two bathrooms a lounge and kitchen. Hoisting facilities are available in each flat. Customers are encouraged to decorate their rooms and make the space their own.

We will speak to you and, with your agreement, others that support you such as your family or other care providers. Following agreement about the suitability of placement, we will develop an individual support plan with you which will outline your communication preferences, lifestyle choices and wishes and health and wellbeing needs. We allow every customer to undertake a three-month trial period so you can experience the service. At the end of the trial period we will hold a review and, if applicable, formally agree the support with the customer, their representative and their sponsoring authority.
