Location! Location! Location! Acorn currently offers housing in 3 areas; Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Torbay.
We hope to extend these areas soon. If you want to live in one of these areas, we may be able to help. And it's not just a case of having to "make do" with what housing we already have, we may be able to "find a flat" just for you. Please see "types of housing" for this exciting way in which we can provide housing...
Acorn provides housing in areas people choose to live. Choosing the right area to live in is really important as this can make a difference to your life. It can help towards your overall wellbeing.
You may want to live near local shops. You may want to live near a bus or train service if you need to travel regularly. Think about family and friends. Would you like to live close by to them, or would you rather have some 'space' between you so that you develop skills for independence more easily? Or, you may choose to live nearer to the people you know well, so that they can be included more in your life, and maybe support you with some things too.
It is important to know that you do not have to choose one of Acorn's homes. Some of our housing is owned by private landlords. See 'Types of Housing'.
Remember - You choose where you want to live, and we will help you find a home and give you support.
