Who are we?

The Upstreet Project believes that all people can make progress, however small.

The team at Cooper Tarry Partners LLP in Upstreet, Kent have both comprehensive training and many years of experience in caring for and supporting clients with Alcohol-Related Brain Damage, Korsakoff’s Syndrome and other forms of brain damage and organic mental health issues.

Rod and Bobbie Tarry opened Roberta House in 1986, to care for the frail elderly. After three successful years with a strong team caring for a range of elderly clients with a variety of needs, they opened Elizabeth House in 1989. Having gained a reputation for being able to support individuals who did not fall into the usual categories, they started to receive more and more referrals for people with this condition that no-one had heard of – Korsakoff’s Syndrome.

In 2006, Emma Tarry joined the team. We changed our registration to reflect our increasing specialisation in adults under 65 with alcohol-related dementia and related conditions as well as other organic mental health issues. In 2017 we opened Artichoak Cottage as part of Elizabeth House and we now support 36 individuals with various forms of alcohol-related dementia, alcohol-related brain damage, hepatic encephalopathy, short term memory loss and related conditions across all three sites. We specialise in supporting people with Korsakoff’s Syndrome.

We are proud to be part of a fantastic team of people who are all really dedicated to making a different every day to the people we support. In 2017, we were thrilled to win the Skills for Care Accolades for award for Best Employer of Under 50 People in the UK. We are professionals, but we are also a family.
