Why did we re-develope the site at Rushbrook?

Devon County Council used to deliver day services for people with learning disabilities from the Totnes area from The Boat Shed on Steamer Quay and Parkers Barn. Some people have profound multiple disabilities and neither site now provides the appropriate environment or space to fully meet the needs of service users and their carers.

Developing our existing site at Rushbrook provided us with the opportunity to meet the needs of these service users and others who have physical and/or sensory disabilities, and provided a centrally located, easily accessible base for a wide range of community services.
