The Old Posting Office

About Us

The Old Posting Office, situated in Stafford, is a residential service tailored to support individuals with Learning Disabilities, Autism, and Mental Health Needs. Our expertise lies in caring for individuals transitioning from Psychiatric Hospitals or Secure Services, as well as those who have experienced unsuccessful placements in the past. With a capacity for up to 7 adults, our service provides diverse and personalised pathways of support, catering to each individual’s unique needs. At our core, we prioritise the strengths, interests, and aspirations of every person we support.

Our Approach

We provide tailored support for individuals with mental health needs, autism, and learning disabilities. Our dedicated focus is on fostering independence to attain optimal outcomes. We work hand in hand with Positive Behaviour Specialists to ensure the safe management of behaviours of the people we support. Every member of our staff undergoes thorough training, empowering them to expertly cater to the distinctive needs of those in our care.


At The Old Posting Office, we pride ourselves on creating a warm and homely atmosphere. While our garden might not be extensive, our quaint village setting boasts convenient facilities. Just across the road, there’s a lovely park area where the people we support can enjoy the outdoors.

Our kitchen is spacious, allowing individuals to cook independently with staff support. Mealtimes are cherished moments where we all gather in our generous dining room to share delicious meals prepared with care.

In our lounge, a stunning fireplace stands as the centrepiece, adding charm to our communal space. We’re currently transforming an area adjacent to the lounge into a cosy sensory space the people supported at the service.

The service includes one self-contained flat situated at the side of the building, ensuring private and independent living. Additionally, we have one ground floor room, providing easy accessibility for those who may require it.

The remaining five rooms are located on the first floor, each featuring its own shower and ensuite facilities, prioritising comfort and privacy for the people we support. Our communal bathroom, equipped with a relaxing bath, adds
to the homely ambiance.

Within our premises, we have a dedicated medication room where our individuals receive personalised support with their medications, ensuring their health needs are met with care.

Additionally, we offer another self-contained flat on the first floor, providing further independent living options. At The Old Posting Office, we prioritise individual preferences and comfort in our accommodation arrangements.

Location and Transport

Nestled in the heart of the charming village of Haughton, the service offers a blend of convenience and accessibility. Situated a mere 8-minute drive, approximately 3.8 miles away, is a nearby train station, providing easy access to broader destinations. Moreover, just across the road from our service, a bus stop seamlessly connects our residents to the town centre, ensuring effortless travel. At our location, we prioritise accessibility, ensuring the people we support have convenient transport links to cater to their needs and exploration.

In this picturesque village, community amenities are within easy reach. A church, directly across the road, welcomes individuals we support when they choose to attend. Up the road from our service, people we support have access to a post office, a chip shop, and a local hairdresser shop, adding to the convenience of our location.

For those seeking diverse facilities and activities, a short bus journey connects us swiftly to both Stafford town centre and Newport town centre, enriching the lives of the people we support with a broader range of services and experiences. Our commitment lies in embracing the convenience and warmth of village life while ensuring accessibility to larger town centres for additional opportunities.

Ethos and Values

Accomplish’s The Old Posting Office service is part of the Keys Group, a family of care and support providers, including Accomplish, Keys, and Peak, who share a common goal of delivering the best outcomes for those we support.

At The Old Posting Office we embody the EPIC values of Excellence, Passion, Integrity, and Caring.

Our commitment to excellence drives us to achieve the highest standards of learning, development, and performance in all that we do.

Our passion for delivering the best outcomes for those in our care is evident in our ambitious and committed approach to care and support.

Our integrity and transparency in our work is reflected in our honest and transparent communication and sharing of results and learnings.

Our caring approach is centred on showing compassion and empathy, placing those in our care at the centre of all that we do, and always putting the people we support at the heart of all our actions.

Good News

Recently, a gentleman who had been a part of The Old Posting Office community for many years embarked on a new chapter in his life. Despite a desire to live closer to his family, he struggled to take that step, citing hesitations and lack of readiness. Over time, with staff support and encouragement, he visited a potential new placement, a significant departure from simply viewing pictures.

Together, they worked through his fears and uncertainties, culminating in his successful transition to a small bungalow close to his family. Now, he enjoys the freedom to visit his loved ones whenever he chooses, marking a significant achievement in his journey toward greater independence and familial connection.
