Is this my house in “Emmer Street”?

We’ve gone all soap crazy at Oaklea – was ever thus! Those we support – and it has to be said some of our staff – have been loving ‘acting up’! (If you ever considered working in social care and love your soaps and more….you’ll be surprised how your interests could fit with those we support – register your interest here

“Are you being served”….oops wrong channel!

It’s right up my Street says Big Shane

Our very own Shane from South Lakes made his way to Weatherfield – as you can see we have clear evidence that he had several walk on parts!

The bigger picture…

Oaklea’s Becki May tells us more from behind the lens: “Myself and Shane had a great day out in Manchester to visit Coronation Street! It’s something Shane has been wanting to do for a long time. It was so well planned – we even had time to stop off in Lancaster on the way back for his favourite KFC tea!” 


If you think we’re biased to the Lancastrian soap – fear not. Two separate Oaklea groups headed to the Dales and Emmerdale!

Ready for your audition….

Furness Registered Manager, Sue ‘Milly’ Millington: “Simon and Alan from Ulverston were supported by staff members Hazel, Pam and Rebecca to visit the set of Emmerdale. Look who they bumped into – yes it’s Cain Dingle!”

Elsewhere the NE also got in a lather!

Not to be outdone – customers from County Durham also ventured to Leeds to the set of Emmerdale too!

Our lovely explorers from Barnard Castle (Gemma, Amanda & Caroline) went down to the ITV studios in Leeds….though as you can see they were well wrapped up – it is the Dales in Autumn after all!

You can see their own soaptastic video on our TikTok channel! 

Finally -roll end credits – the Rover did return…

& tucked into some RFC –Rovers Fried Chicken?……we think….enjoy Shane!
