About Us

Established in 1995, we now support 275 adults in supportive, creative and dynamic environments that allow them to fulfil their potential and live the life they choose.

As an approved provider with Oxfordshire County Council our person-centred support ranges from 24-hour care for those with complex learning, health and /or physical disabilities to a few hours support per week for those who live more independently.

People we support are given the freedom and independence to live with peers in a supported environment through our supported living households. We also run three community hubs in Wallingford, Didcot and Banbury so that people with learning disabilities can get the best out of their local communities.

People can also access sessions at Wantage Market Garden through our Gardening Project, where we teach a range of gardening skills that benefit physical and mental health and our Work Programme team supports people to gain paid and voluntary work opportunities both within Style Acre and with local companies. The wellbeing of everyone in the Style Acre community is embedded in our day to day lives through our Ways to Wellness programme.

Our History

Style Acre was originally a residential care home where young adults with learning disabilities and autism were supported. Style Acre Friends was formed as a registered charity in 1992 by the parents of the people supported there.

They succeeded in raising the money to purchase the property and took over the running of the home in 1995. In 2004, the residential home was sold and the money raised from its sale was used to purchase houses in local towns and villages. Style Acre Friends became Style Acre and focused on providing support, while a separate charity was formed called Acre Housing, dealing with property.

We have grown from supporting 20 people in 2004 to supporting 275 people in 2024.
