The history of Ryde House Group by the Clewley family
Contributed and written by Miranda, John and Adam Clewley
As the name of our company suggests, Ryde House Group began simply with only Ryde House, together with Ryde Cottage. Back then in 1986 we were able to provide residential care to only 29 people, plus some cows and chickens that came with the property.
As time passed we were gradually able to increase the number of people we could support. First came the development of day services, which has gone on to become Willow Village. Then in the 90's, we added Clifton Cottage and Woodville. The year 2000 then saw the addition of Newton Lodge.
Our biggest project to date has been the construction of Players Copse, consisting of Beech House, Silver Birch, Maple Tree and Sycamore House. These 4 purpose built care homes represent our desire to provide more of the services that the Isle of Wight needs, and were a major investment for the organisation.
Since then we have continued to expand by offering additional types of care and support. By creating Outreach Services, it means that people can now receive our support both in the community and in their own homes.
On the 1st August 2016 we celebrated the 30th anniversary of the business, and our grateful thanks go out to everyone who has helped us achieve this milestone. Over those 30 years we have always strived to provide the best service possible, raise care standards and achieve great outcomes for the people we support. We couldn't do it without you and believe in the quality of the service that we all work hard to provide. The business is now better prepared than ever before to overcome the challenges that providing care services present and we look forward to a future where even more people can benefit from the support of Ryde House Group.
