Mannering Avenue is a purpose built home in Dumfries. We offer support for eight residents who have a primary diagnosis of a learning disability, and may have an underlying mental health diagnosis.

Supporting you

We encourage and support our residents to develop personal hobbies and interests, and to experience a range of activities with full support, both at home and in the local area.

Whatever our resident’s interests might be – horticulture, football, rambling or photography – the team work to enable the development of skills, whilst providing the safeguards necessary for their personal support needs.


The home is spacious, comfortably furnished to a high standard and wheelchair accessible.

All bedrooms have en-suite facilities, and we encourage people to bring their own belongings and to decorate their rooms in the style they prefer.

Downstairs, the communal areas include an activity room and a large kitchen/dining room, which lead out onto the enclosed garden for relaxation, gardening or perhaps al-fresco dining.

We also have a training kitchen which provides the opportunity to be creative with food, or develop skills for more independent living, in a safe, and controlled environment.

The team

Mannering Avenue is staffed to meet the needs of our residents. The service manager leads a team who provide both day and night support, and have received comprehensive training to equip them to meet the specific needs of the people we support.

The range includes: e-learning for statutory courses; vocational training – SVQ in Health and Social Care; Non-violent Crisis Intervention; and specialist knowledge, for instance, mental health and learning disability, or epilepsy. Support and super vision for staff are regularly provided.


Attractions and facilities in the Dumfries area include historic buildings, forest walks, sports facilities and shopping outlets. There are also public transport links to the coast and cities.

Our residents have the opportunity to join local work placements, specialist sports clubs and learning centres, where appropriate.
