Who we support

We’re a specialist provider delivering person-centred care. Our residents have a wide range of physical disabilities, sensory impairments and/or long-term health conditions, such as:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Brain injury
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Substance misuse
  • Sensory impairments
  • Stroke

Since being at Athol House, I feel so much more confident and now have a positive mind set when I think about the future. I used to live life in survival mode and now I feel like I'm really living and getting the most out of life as I learn new strategies to help me with my mental health.  I finally feel like I belong and am part of a friendly and warm family, a feeling I haven't felt in a very long time.

What activities are available

Athol House is well connected to the Crystal Palace community. It has a famous park, great leisure facilities, shops and more. 

Our dedicated Activities Coordinator, Felicity, has built strong connections in the local community. Whatever your interests, our focus is on supporting you to do the things you love. Below are some examples of the types of activities our residents enjoy at Athol House:

  • Art therapy
  • Cooking
  • Exercise sessions
  • Bingo
  • Days out
  • Music therapy
  • Local football matches

We were so proud to see Felicity’s work celebrated when she won a local community award for her programme of events at Athol House.

You must remember that each person is different, and you have to build a strong relationship to understand what each resident’s preferences are. I have been able to get so many different people involved such as the Brit School, Dulwich Boys School, The Chancery Choir, and the Royal Academy of Arts. Working as an Activities Coordinator, was the best choice I ever made and I love every aspect of my role.
