St Edmunds Court is a supported accommodation facility provided for both men and women whose lives have been primarily impaired by alcohol/substance misuse and other vulnerable groups who have an identified need for longer term support to enable a successful return to independent community living. The prime aim of the project will be to allow the service users to maximise their full potential by assisting them to plan an effective, positive and realistic personal resettlement support plan, whilst continuing to live alcohol/substance free.

There are laundry facilities on the premises at number 110 along with a communal meeting room lounge, study room with PC/broadband connection, fully equipped careers suite, combined dining kitchen, pool room and other leisure facilities available.
