We aim to enable opportunities for personal
development and growth through active participation in community life and
therapeutic activities within the scheme.
Radius also proactively encourages family involvement and we welcome their participation and feedback.

We believe in providing a well-balanced diet using fresh and seasonal ingredients. Before a resident moves in, we will sit down with them and their carer to discuss their dietary requirements, including any specially prescribed diet. Catering services are inspected by local Environmental Health Services ensuring full compliance with Safe Catering Guidelines.
All our meals are freshly cooked on-site at the scheme. All menu plans are displayed in each of the dining rooms in the bungalows and on resident noticeboards.
Meals are generally served in each resident's bungalow and they are supported to make their own snacks. Radius Housing recognises the importance of active participation in the community and residents are provided with opportunities to eat out at local restaurants and cafes if they choose to do so.
An active lifestyle can make a huge difference to well being and health. Our staff arrange a daily programme of activities that are based on an individual assessment of need and preferences aimed at enhancing quality of life.
