Ms. Sally Gillson (Home Manager)Sally-Gillson
Sally has over 15 years experience as a Manager within the LD sector. Sally is extremely passionate in both residential and specialist care for people with Learning Disabilities and is particularly interested in advocacy services. Also manager of Chepstow House, Sally's aim now is to bring her experience and skills to Lyndale and to offer first class support to all its service users.


Lyndale is situated in a quiet residential area approximately 1 mile from Hereford city centre. The house is a large well-furbished detached property, standing in its own grounds, within easy walking distance of a range of local shops, Hereford train and bus stations, and the local cinema.

Set in picturesque countryside, Hereford itself offers a lively and modern pedestrianised city centre with good shopping facilities and a wide array of local amenities and attractions, including Hereford cathedral with its award-winning Mappa Mundi exhibition.

Overview of the service

Lyndale is a specialist residential home for up to 10 adults with learning disabilities who may also have a dual diagnosis (including mental health problems or Autistic Spectrum Disorders) and additional complex needs.

We are able to accommodate both short-term and longer-term placements.

Lyndale's two independent living flats are an invaluable on-site resource in this regard, whether utilised as an independent living opportunity from the outset of an individual's placement or as subsequent step-down accommodation.
