An Diadan House

n Diadan is a six bedroom residential home for young adults with care and support needs in the Shirley area of Croydon in south London.

The area of Shirley used to be made up of Hamlets on the site of the Monk's Orchard grand estate back in the 1850s. Today, Shirley is part of the borough of Croydon, which has good local amenities available to residents such as shops, restaurants, leisure clubs, cinemas, GP surgeries and other health professionals, parks and good transport links into central London and out into the surrounding countryside.

The house itself is spread across two floors and has stunning enclosed gardens surrounding it.

The ground floor is made up of made up of large communal areas that include two spacious reception rooms, where people can enjoy different social activities to help build and create positive relationships. It also has a large kitchen/diner, where daily living skills are taught and practiced to enable a more confident and independent way of living. Also on the ground floor there is currently one private bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a laundry room for acquiring helpful life skills.

The first floor houses five bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms, with views out to the mature and well-kept gardens and surrounding countryside.

All bedrooms are individualised and chosen to suit the identity and needs of the person.

The kitchen/diner has access to extensive secure gardens which has a large lawn for outdoor activities and social gatherings. The garden has an additional building which has three rooms for educational hobbies, arts and sensory activities. Having this dynamic space, we can integrate a therapeutic service which incorporates the entire complex in meeting the challenging needs that the residents face. We are able to provide opportunities for social integration and a safe place for friends and families to visit and spend time with their loved ones.

At An Diadan we are driven by wanting to make a difference and setting high standards in everything we provide – from the design and layout of a home to exceptional support teams caring for our residents. We strive to create a warm and homely environment as well as teach skills for people that will set them up for life. It is the quality of the care and support that is essential to delivering fulfilled lives for all of the individuals we support. We believe that each person is exceptional and deserves to live the life they choose. The environment we create gives people the very best start in building a life in adulthood that enables and supports in learning skills that will develop over time.

The name 'An Diadan' means 'haven' or 'shelter', which is in-keeping with the Kisimul ethos of safe and tranquil living for the people who use its services.
