Just BU Base Locations

We currently have two different locations where you can come to see us.

Just BU Leigh

Just BU Leigh offers the opportunity to be supported as individuals and small groups. This is a relaxed environment with 5 rooms to use, has a downstairs toilet, a garden, and great access to the local towns, Pennington flash, Firs park and other recreational areas.

There are bus stops near the house and pedestrian crossings for those with independent travel skills, or those individuals who want to learn to travel independently.

Here you can be involved in learning domestic skills, DIY, gardening, community projects, going out on day trips, educational award schemes if you choose, and opportunities to decide what you want for the future.

We have a partnership with As Sweet As Honey Cakes and Balloons, a shop across the road, where you can gain valuable experience in baking, customer service, and general work experience. You can be supported to participate in all the projects that Just BU has to offer including sessions with Fusion CIC, and be involved in everything to do with market trading.
