Eden Futures provides care and support for new supported living service in Derby


Eden Futures is providing care and support for new accommodation in the centre of Derby, which recently opened its doors.

Built by Minster Developments for Inclusion Housing Association and the commissioning team of Derby City Council, Eden Futures has taken on 25 employees to support the people living there.

The first person moved in this week to the housing which includes twelve self-contained apartments and three new build specialist bungalows.

Dave Whittock, director of service development, says: “Each person we support has their own tenancy agreement and front door, regardless of how complex their behavioural needs are.  Since 1994 we’ve helped thousands of people to live in their community by providing the care and support packages they need.  We’ve facilitated 200 new placements in the last five years alone and currently assist 650 people across 170 sites.

“We can only achieve this by working with developers, commissioners, landlords and health professionals in partnership. Together we’re able to work towards having the right sustainable support for people living in their own accommodation.”
