Victoria House - Community Living

Village living, aiding those with mild learning difficulties to thrive.

Founded in 1981, Victoria House is set up to accommodate people with mild learning difficulties aged 18 - 64. All residents are encouraged to live their lives as independently as possible. This family-feel accommodation, with its own house manager, is located in Llangadog where carers and residents share household responsibilities, social activities and mealtimes. Friends & Family of Victoria House, a small association of supporters, also help to make the house a happy, healthy place to be.

Village Living to Build Independence 

A thriving village location means that residents have easy access to shops, cafes and pubs. Good public transport links allow people to strive for independent access to neighbouring towns and cities.

Next to Victoria House is a weavery and a coffee shop.

A Cottage Industry

Our weaving is facilitated by a skilled tutor and residents have produced some beautiful creations over the years. All products are exhibited and sold in craft shops, markets and galleries. The quality and reputation of the work from the weavery has resulted in commissions from all over the world.

An onsite coffee shop is also run by residents, helping to create a cottage industry environment that is open to the general public.

Our daughter's ability to engage with the general public has greatly improved. This is due to her existence in a wonderful community setting in which she co-exists with peers, staff and volunteers thus giving her a confidence in her place in this world.

People have a voice, are able to personalise their own space and enjoy a range of communal space. Activities are organised to encourage people to follow individual interests in addition to some group activities. People have a sense of purpose with some employment experience and feel a part of their local community. The staff team support people to live their lives to the full.
