CWL Living

Our Scheme Managers are the core of our support for you as well as being responsible for the security of the complex.

They are there to provide you with the support you may require in your day-to-day life and help with liaising with statutory and voluntary services on your behalf.

You will still be responsible for all your own care, medication, activities and financial situation, however they will not advise on any of these aspects but, if asked, they will ensure you can contact those agencies who can help.
