A short breaks and respite service for people with disabilities is being relaunched this month by Linkage Community Trust

The Keal View site, a nine-bedroomed house, overlooking the Lincolnshire Wolds at Toynton All Saints near Spilsby, has been dedicated by Linkage to provide short breaks all year round.

The house features downstairs bedrooms, a wet room, overhead tracking, hoists, specialist beds and wheelchair-accessible transport.

The service is aimed at 18-64 year olds.

Director of Care Services, Rex Richardson said: “We know from regular clients that staying at Keal View is a happy experience and it’s very much tailored to the individual. They enjoy time away from home and normal routine, and we have specialist support available to help.”

To mark the relaunch, a new brochure has been produced by the learning disabilty charity, called: ‘Enjoy Every Moment’, and it will be unveiled at an open day on Thursday, May 29, from 11am-4pm.
