The Old Rectory supports a range of adults with learning disabilities, who may also have an attached diagnosis such as Autism, Diabetes, Down's Syndrome or Epilepsy. We promote independence, equality, dignity and respect and as a team we are focused on building positive outcomes for everyone.

Overview of Service

People living here range from 20 to 65 years of age. All staff receive training in communication to suit the varying needs of each individual. The staffing ratio is dependent on individual needs and 1:1 support is available, where necessary. We provide 24 hour support and there is an on-call system for use in emergency situations.

Everyone is involved in designing their own Person Centred Plan, with staff support. The plans are tailored to suit individual needs and provide the correct level of support required. They also enable all individuals to make their own choices about the support they receive. We encourage and support everyone at The Old Rectory to recognise and identify their goals and ambitions and decide how they would like to go about achieving them.

At The Old Rectory we promote independence, equality, dignity and respect. We empower those living here to take ownership of their Person Centred Plans and their home.

The service promotes Craegmoor's communication strategy, "Your Voice", which encourages individuals, based on their preferred method of communication, to voice their views about the support they receive. Monthly meetings are held where individuals are able to represent the views and voices of others living at The Old Rectory.

What it's Like to Live Here

We offer a wide variety of activities at The Old Rectory, both in and out of the service. Many individuals attend day care centres, get involved with art projects and join theatre groups and gardening groups. We have an in-house day centre, which we also invite individuals from other services to attend, to join us on trips out. We organise regular trips to the cinema and the theatre and we often go bowling, swimming and shopping.

The people who live at The Old Rectory choose how they want to spend their day and this may include attending a gardening club, socialising at lunch, going to study photography at a day care service, helping prepare dinner and attending an evening club.


The Old Rectory is situated in the countryside, where individuals can enjoy the tranquillity of the local surroundings. Everyone has a bus pass and just a short walk away there are bus stops to Hastings, Bexhill and Eastbourne.

The service is 7 miles from Hastings town centre which has plenty of shops and leisure facilities.

Service Facilities

The Old Rectory is made up of a large, detached property and a small cottage within its own grounds, with substantial gardens. People who live here enjoy being in the gardens and enjoy having a BBQ on a regular basis, weather permitting. The main house supports 13 people and the cottage supports 3 people.

The cottage is situated in its own garden and is within close proximity of the main house. The cottage is a stepping stone to independent living for those who are more independent, but require support before moving on to their own property.

People living at The Old Rectory are encouraged to personalise their bedrooms and community rooms.

Individuals help to choose the meals and are encouraged to eat a healthy, well balanced diet.
