New supported living accommodation has opened in east Hull, with Eden Futures having been appointed by Hull City Council to deliver the care and support packages for residents.
Split across two neighbouring sites Isaac Newton House has been built by Preston Road Developments Ltd for Hilldale Housing Association and commissioned by Hull City Council. The service comprises 13 self-contained apartments which have been modelled in an existing building, and eight new-build specialist bungalows with built-in assistive technology.
Eden Futures has created 35 new support worker posts for the service and appointed Anita Lovelock as Service Manager. The company has provided long-term care, support and housing solutions locally for over 25 years, including in Bridlington, Goole, Cottingham and Scunthorpe.
Anita Lovelock, Service Manager, says: “We support people to be as independent as possible and to achieve what they want to with their lives. We’re pleased to extend our support services locally and look forward to welcoming people soon and help them settle into their new homes.”
Councillor Gwen Lunn, Portfolio Holder for Adult Social Care and Public Health at Hull City Council, adds: “We’re delighted to see this new Eden Futures development open to move people who are working age adults with autism, learning disabilities or mental health needs through our Transforming Care pathway; out of residential care and into supported living. The development is in line with demand with seven referrals already in progress and a further eight in the pipeline.”
