"I love living in Rainbow House" – Michael
"We do lots of new things and I like living with my friends" – Chloe
In 2008, after many years of planning and fundraising, five young disabled and learning disabled adults moved into Rainbow Living's first Rainbow House in Exeter.
Based on the outskirts of Devon's county town, the house was fully refurbished and adapted to meet the needs of its tenants, each with their own unique requirements. The house has communal space, including a lounge, kitchen and large dining room; tenants have individual bedrooms and bathrooms, and there is separate sleeping and bathroom facilities for support staff. The large garden offers tenants the opportunity to enjoy outdoor space and includes a small vegetable area.
The Exeter Rainbow House allows its tenants, who range in age from 24 to 32, freedom and choice, whilst ensuring they are supported with the professional care they require. This support is provided by Christian care provider Livability. Livability ensure that all the young adults living at the Exeter Rainbow House receive both physical and emotional support, through recreational activities and ongoing personal development.

As the landlord of the Rainbow House, Rainbow Living ensures that the house is maintained and in good condition for the tenants and care staff.
