About Myland House

Myland House offers accommodation for five people in spacious bedrooms, all with ensuite shower rooms. The service is situated in the heart of the community and is only twenty minutes from award-winning beaches and popular points of interest such as Colchester Castle and the beautiful castle park.


The people we support enjoy access to a wide range of activities, including arts & crafts, gardening and visiting various points of interest in the local community and regular trips to the theatre. There is also a brilliantly large wildlife garden for people to enjoy.

Our rehabilitation models 

Our specialist rehabilitation is based on a neuro-behavioural approach and focuses on enabling people to function more independently and develop their lives as they choose.

The programme may include:

  • Educational and therapeutic sessions
  • Support for personal, social and domestic skills
  • Guided leisure time
  • Behavioural management
  • Community access
  • Vocational support and training

The people we support are actively involved in reviewing their progress against agreed outcomes, and we promote the involvement of families in the rehabilitation process. Home leave is encouraged wherever possible.

Becoming more independent

Access to the community is an important part of the rehabilitation journey. As Myland House is located in a popular part of the city, within walking distance to a good selection of shops, the town centre, restaurants, and the main railway station, the service is ideally situated for community integration. These locations also offer opportunities for education, training, and work placements.
