About Binley Woods

Binley Woods is a small, nurturing, community based home offering 24 hour care to young adults whose complex needs mean they need more clinical support than one would normally expect to find in mainstream post-18 residential services.

Our location, in a community setting, is in keeping with our aspiration that, wherever possible, the young adults living at Binley Woods do so as a temporary stepping stone on a pathway to independent living.
