Coppice House is a large, detached home set in 4.5 acres of beautiful Gloucestershire countryside near the Forest of Dean, and only five miles away from Gloucester city centre. Coppice House provides a home for twelve adults with Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC), Asperger’s Syndrome with associated learning disabilities, and complex emotional and behavioural needs. The home is divided up into three accommodation areas, with seven residents in the main house, and four in the adjoining bungalow and an additional residentin a 1 bedded, self contained annex.
A long driveway leads through an orchard to a small car park, set away from the main house. The house itself is stone-built and set in safe, peaceful, landscaped grounds. There are seven individual bedrooms on the first floor, and on the ground floor is a spacious living room, computer room, sensory room, kitchen, dining room and an office. Next to the main house is a bungalow for four service users. The bungalow has a living/dining room area next to a spacious conservatory. In addition there are two bathrooms and a separate training kitchen.
The home is currently occupied by male service users with ASC who appreciate a minimalist approach to their environment and structure to their day. Service users are offered privacy and safety, whilst still enjoying a place in the local community.
Coppice House has two vehicles, which are used for a variety of recreational and educational trips and activities in the community.
