About the Organisation

Base House, SWALLOW’s training house, offers training in independent living skills to people with learning disabilities. Base House is often our members’ first taste of independence; it offers overnight stays for members to learn a range of skills including cooking, cleaning, budgeting, shopping and personal development.

We are delighted that Base House as developed links with Fosse Way School. Young people who attend the school stay overnight at the Base House and experience life away from home.
