About Us

The British Home in Streatham, South London, provides 24 hour professional nursing care for 90 residents with severe disabilities.

Most residents are wheelchair users with disabilities caused by illnesses such as multiple sclerosis and stroke. Some have acquired brain injury, others have been injured through accidents or crime.

Residents have modern and spacious single rooms and are cared for as individuals with unique and specific needs. They are encouraged to make decisions and keep as much control as possible over their lives.

Providing residents with the skilled nursing they depend on is extremely costly. Most of our residents need expensive, highly specialised equipment so that they can live in comfort and dignity; a mattress that protects the skin of a vulnerable person and allows a full night’s restful sleep can cost over £3,000.

Most residents at the Home receive funding from local and health authorities, but we still have to raise at least £180 a week per person to cover our full costs.

Legacies are a vital source of support and help us to afford the equipment our residents need.

Donations enable us to provide a full programme of leisure activities that help people to enjoy their lives again.

Can you help? If you can remember us in your Will or make a donation it would make a real and direct difference to the lives of people with severe disabilities.
