Chescombe Trust was formed in 1991 when a group of young people were due to move on from St. Christopher’s School to adult provision. There was concern amongst some of the parents about the suitability of future provision available and the ability to meet the specific needs of their children as they moved into adulthood. Fortuitously St. Christopher’s School was in the process of vacating Chescombe Lodge, one of their houses in Westbury Park, and the house in which these people had been accommodated. A small group of parents formed The Trust and initially leased Chescombe Lodge from St. Christopher’s and subsequently purchased it, hence the name Chescombe Trust.
It had always been the intention of The Trust to move to a more suitable premises and the opportunity to purchase land in Patchway on which to purpose build pleasant accommodation, suited to meet individual needs, presented itself.
After much hard work and planning the move was made in May of 2011.
A few years on and after some changes in residents we continue to provide a good standard of personalised support for 19 residents across four living locations on the same site.
There is a high staff retention, (some people still here from the beginning of The Trust).
There has been change amongst the trustees, but the family involvement remains with siblings of current residents on the board.
