Rotherham supported living accommodation opens


New supported living accommodation has opened in Rawmarsh, Rotherham, with Eden Futures having been appointed by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council to deliver the care and support packages for people living there.

Willowgarth has been built by Minster Developments for Hilldale Housing Association and commissioned by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council.  The 14-bed service comprises eight self-contained apartments, and six ground floor bungalows with built-in assistive technology, making them suitable for people with physical disabilities too.

Eden Futures has provided long-term care, support and housing solutions locally for over 25 years, including in Clowne, Dinnington, Wath-upon-Dearne, Parkgate and Maltby.

An open day is being held on Wednesday 14 July for people to view the service, both to live and to work there.

Angela Clarke, Housing 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 services locally and look forward to welcoming people soon and help them settle into their new homes and provide ongoing support.

“We’re recruiting for 30 positions to support this service, so if you’re interested in a rewarding career in social care do visit the jobs page on our website for more information.”

 

Dawn Berry, Chief Executive Officer, says: “We’re delighted to see this new development open to move people who are working age adults with autism, learning disabilities or mental health needs out of residential care and into supported living. There are four referrals in progress for the service already and a further eight in the pipeline.”
