Our supported living services are full of activities with a busy calendar of group cooking classes, exercise, health and nutrition workshops, 1-2-1 time and occupational therapy to suit everyone’s needs and help our residents to reach their recovery goals.

Highlights from life at Merchants House:


One of our residents at Merchants House is a big Hairspray fan, so the team held a movie night complete with a buffet and everyone got cosy to watch the film. Team members even donned the classic Hairspray wigs to get into the mood!

Christmas Celebrations

Merchants House team and residents enjoyed lovely Christmas and Boxing Day celebrations!

Christmas Decs

Merchants House residents decorated a beautiful Christmas wreath to hang on the front door with support from Occupational Therapy support worker Sophie. They also built and decorated a gingerbread house.

Meanwhile, Business Administrator Lisa was busy getting creative in the office, decorating her fan as an improvised Christmas tree so that the team had something to put their Secret Santa presents under!

Happy Halloween!

Here are some more amazing Halloween decorations from the team and residents at Merchants House!

Resident Networking Day

Merchants House kicked off the first of the resident networking days! Residents from Hyde Park House and Radcliffe House travelled over to Merchants House and enjoyed an afternoon playing games in the sunshine, followed by a delicious BBQ.

The event was a fantastic opportunity for residents from different services to meet each other, and feedback from residents was really positive. The team and residents are looking forward to the next event!

Bonfire Recipes

Following on from the success of their Halloween recipe board, Merchants House have created a Bonfire Night recipe board and residents enjoyed hearty home cooked pie and peas to celebrate Bonfire Night evening! 🎆

Halloween preparations are underway!

The staff at Merchants House have worked really hard to create a fun environment for our residents over Halloween. They have lots of fun activities planned, including pumpkin picking, pumpkin carving competitions, and spooky movie nights! 🎃👻

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Merchants House held a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan. They put on a delicious spread (sweet tooth heaven!) and raised over £65 for Macmillan!

New group activity Retro Mania is a hit!

Every Friday at Merchants House our residents take a trip down memory lane with a new group activity – Retro Mania! One resident comments, “It’s like stepping into a time machine.” Another resident enjoys reminiscing about playing the games when he was younger & enjoys humming the theme tunes to the iconic games. As well as a fun activity for friendly competition, some residents have observed improvements in their hand-eye coordination!

Happy Halloween!

🎃 Our residents have been getting into the spooky spirit ahead of their Halloween celebrations this Saturday. The Merchants House team have transformed their service into a haunted house! 🎃

One of our residents hits the road with his new wheels

You may remember, earlier this year we shared an amazing achievement for one of our residents from Merchants House who passed his CBT. Well, he didn’t stop there, after working hard to save his money – Christmas came a little early 🛵 🎅

John OTA comments: “We couldn’t be prouder of our resident for overcoming the challenges that 2020 has brought and working so hard to achieve his CBT and save for his first moped!”

Merchants House Fun Day

It might be lockdown, but the team and residents at Merchants House enjoyed a fun day in their garden with prizes to be won by all!
