The Cuttings

‘The Cuttings Extra Care Housing’ provides independent living with 24-hour support. Our extra care team can deliver personal care to those tenants that require it, but still allowing the tenants their privacy and independence.

The Cuttings has 55 apartments which are unfurnished and can be decorated by the tenants and their families. There are a mixture of one- & two-bedroom apartments and studio flats. Each apartment will be fully equipped and offer complete security and privacy.

Our restaurant, The Dining Car, is open from 12.30pm – 2pm for Lunch & 4.30pm – 6pm for Supper. It is open to the public as well as our tenants and staff. Our catering team provide nutritious, well-balanced lunches and dinners seven days a week.

Tenants have access to an onsite team who provide care 24 hours a day. The team are able to cater for individual needs including providing specialist care for those living with dementia.

The Cuttings is a fantastic, purpose-built community where elderly people can feel safe and looked after without giving up their independence. If you are unable to continue supporting yourself in your own home but you’re not quite ready for full residential care, then The Cuttings provides that perfect balance.

There will also be a community hub and a commercial kitchen to accommodate the growing demand on our hot food delivery service, in which we are able to deliver up to 1000 meals a week!

There is a constant demand for all our services and we work exceptionally hard to ensure that our standards never drop. As a not-for-profit organisation, we do not have huge amounts of financial reserves. This means that we rely greatly on the generosity and support of the local community. You can help us continue making a difference by donating, volunteering or fundraising.
