Mayfield House was one of the first residential Homes in the country to be opened especially for people with a learning disability in 1972. It created a very welcome oportunity for people to live in an environment where professional care and support was available to all of the residents as and when it was needed. A number of people who moved in at the time still live there in a homely and supportive atmosphere.
The home has always enjoyed an excellent reputation in Halifax. An extension was built in 1976 to meet an increasing demand for the services provided and in 1981 some old stables on the grounds were converted to three flats for people who didn't need the same level of support as those living in the main house. Today, the stables, now known as the 'cottages' comprises of two self contained flats on the ground floor and three bedrooms, a lounge and a kitchen on the first floor. At the rear of the cottages there is a wonderful sensory garden which is enjoyed not only by the residents, but also by sevice users of The Next Step Trust and young people of Ravenscliffe High School.
Over the years excellent support has been provided by carefully chosen and well trained staff to improve the skills and acheive the ambitions of everyone who lives there. Some people have gained part time employment or do some work voluntarily.
The home enjoys the respect of families and friends of the residents and continues to develop and improve its practices to ensure that ever changing needs are satisfied. The success of management and staff in doing so is reflected in the home being judged Compliant with The RegulatoryBodies.
