Pevensey is a care-based facility for cerebral palsy adults, you have to be over the age of 18 to be admitted. There are 76 residents in total from the ages of 23-84 years.

All the residents are expected to do some form of work in the day to day runnings of Pevensey within their capabilities. The close knit community of Underberg is actively involved at Pevensey and in the lives of the residents. Residents are encouraged to participate in many social gatherings and activities.
