  • Location Information
  • Situated in Darlington, County Durham, Victoria House supports up to six women who are living with a learning disability and whose needs and behaviours may be complex. The team can also support people who may have associated mental or physical health needs. People may come to Victoria House for a number of reasons. They may be moving on following a stay at an NHS or other specialist learning disability service, or may need more support than can be offered in a supported living environment. It may also be that they require a little extra support during a difficult period in their life, or they could be on a pathway to a place of their own.
