Developing our houses
We are pleased that our new build programme of 17 brand new 4-bedroom houses is now complete. These new homes enable all those who stay on site with us to develop their independence skills as well as share homes that reflect real life experiences often with peers from their school or college. The homes support our young people's transition to adulthood as they enjoy opportunities to become independent and learn skills that will be with them for life.
The first phase of building work was completed in the summer of 2015 with the new houses in use from September 2015 for residential students and short breaks. The second, and final, phase of building work was completed in the spring of 2016 and transition into these homes was completed by the summer.
Our gallery shows the completed houses, or you can find an archive showing the build in-progress here. You can also read more about the opening of the first nine houses here, or look back to 2014 when the first phase was still underway. Residential Support Worker Jessica O'Neill explained more about her work in Young Adult's Care, also over on the blog.
