  • Henbury Leisure Centre.

Each flat has a separate bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and living room and are fully carpeted.  Tenants are required to furnish their own flat.

Buckley Court has:

  • a communal laundry
  • a meeting/social room
  • its own enclosed garden, a part of which tenants are encouraged to develop and maintain.

How to get a referral

Contact us for a referral form.

Assessment and support plan

As a potential tenant, you'll be assessed and will need to meet criteria before you can move into Buckley Court. When you become a tenant, you'll have an individual support plan and will then attend support times and group support sessions each week to develop these skills.

If you're not sure if we can help, then please contact with us.

If you don't meet the criteria to live at Buckley Court then our floating support team may be able to support you to maintain independence in your own home or support you to find alternative suitable accommodation elsewhere.
