Kington House

Kington House is a community based residential home split into 2 environments, which we term “house” and “annex”. Both the house and annex are equipped to support male and female adults with mental health needs (which includes individuals who have a diagnosis of schizophrenia, personality disorder, alcohol and substance misuse). We also have experience of working with people with Learning Disabilities and dual diagnosis. We have a great deal of experience of supporting individuals with Acquired Brain Injuries and provide a rehabilitation focus with a view to people moving onto further independence.

Our Approach

Our aim is to provide a comforting and supporting environment for the people we support and the staff team to carry out their work. The service has a warm nurturing atmosphere and we ensure people receive the right level of support to empower them and increase their level of independence.

Outcome Focused

We are committed to ensuring our service can demonstrate clear and measurable outcomes. We use the Goal Attainment Scale (GAS Goals) to track progress and this is supported by the BIIES (Brain Injury Independence and Emotional Scale). We also use the recovery star model and the active support model. Both of these models are individualised to the person and are used for goal planning and to promote greater independence.


Kington House has 7 bedrooms and the annex has 4 bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own en-suite. The annex is equipped to supporting individuals with more physical needs. We have mobility aids, handrails throughout and a stair lift that provides access to the first floor. The ground floor is suitable for wheelchair users. The home is situated in the West End of Barry and is very close to the seaside and some lovely local parks. There are local high streets with plenty of restaurants, coffee shops and pubs. We are situated on a main transport route, close to the airport and have easy access to the M4 and the Five Mile Lane
