Work with Us

At Stanley Grange Community Association, we want to offer the best possible support to the residents who live here and therefore we focus not just on what we do but why we do it. We are continually striving to improve, create more opportunities for our residents and build a thriving community where everyone has a life-fulfilling experience.

Stanley Grange is led by a board of dedicated, professional and experienced trustees who since 2015 have not only saved Stanley Grange from closure but also raised over £950k to begin an ambitious modernisation and refurbishment plan for the accommodations at Stanley Grange. Core to our work is our partnership with Future Directions, who provide care to all residents living on site.

Thank you for your interest in joining our team here at Stanley Grange.
