Adult Services

Our residential adults live in the bungalows, Hannahwood Mews and Arthur in Park Street. Our service also supports non-residential adults too. The adults are aged 18 upwards. All the adults take part in a range of activities in Hannahwood as well as going on outings such as sailing, bushcraft at Burrator Reservoir and dog walks around Devon.

Charity Shops

We operate 8 local charity shops with 5 in Plymouth and 1 each in Ivybridge, Newton Abbot and Saltash. These shops give Dame Hannahs a base in a number of local communities and most importantly generate much needed charitable funds for the services at Ivybridge.

Our holistic approach offers professional support from our therapists, educationalists, expert medical staff and a care team. We all work together to empower every person to have the most enriched and fulfilling life possible.

We are a Disability Confident Employer.

Local Community

We work alongside a fantastic Fundraising team who are pivotal to raising money for the facilities in Ivybridge. They work alongside the local community and various organisations who kindly support the Trust.
