Hub Living is the first step towards independence

Everyone has the right to live independently. Hub Living gives young adults with additional needs the opportunity to experience what getting their own place might be like for real.

As part of a carefully mapped-out journey towards independence, a short stay in one of our fully equipped training flats builds confidence and develops everyday life skills such as planning the shopping, preparing
meals and carrying out household chores.

Of course we all know that life rarely goes to plan. Hub Living allows our team of key workers to troubleshoot any challenges that may occur and to plan the steps required to help you get to where you want to be in life.
