New supported living accommodation opens in Coventry
New specialist independent living accommodation for adults with learning disabilities, autism and mental health needs has opened in Coventry. The supported living service in Willenhall, Coventry consists of fifteen purpose-built apartments.
Eden Futures has been operating in Coventry for over 10 years, however, it’s the company’s first partnership venture of a newly built development. It’ll be managed by Auckland Home Solutions CIC as the registered social landlord and will allow individuals to live independently, have their own secure tenancy agreement and benefit from Eden Futures’ 24/7 care and support.
Dave Whittock, director of service development, says: “This new bespoke accommodation complements our existing services in the city and enables us to expand our services, with the aim of moving people out of long-term residential care to live more independently with professional support.
“We welcome applications for support worker posts for Willenhall as they‘re integral to the support network we provide. We’re looking for people to join us who don’t just work in the sector already, but those people with no experience who want an alternative career as full training is provided from the start.”
Claire Batsford, CEO, Auckland Home Solutions CIC, says: “We’re proud to be working in partnership with Eden Futures and Coventry City Council to bring new supported living apartments to Coventry. Often individuals are housed away from friends and family in places that can deprive them of their independence. We work proactively to provide a front door and, a place to call home, in high quality accommodation. The people who’ll live here will benefit from a home which is purpose-designed and built to meet their needs, including the addition of assistive technology.”

New supported living service and jobs creation coming to Pudsey
- Eden Futures launches recruitment drive to assist people in supported living
Eden Futures is actively recruiting for 48 staff members to assist people set to live in new accommodation in Leeds. The supported living service in Pudsey will open Spring 2022 and contain twelve apartments and eight specialist bungalows within a purpose-built development.
Eden Futures works with adults who are autistic, have learning disabilities, enduring mental ill health and high support needs to support them in their everyday life. It’s provided flexible long-term care and support for people for over 25 years across northern England and the Midlands. This involves on-site support like in Pudsey where people live independently but support workers are available 24 hours a day.
Developer Pudsey SSL Limited is building the accommodation for Blue Square Residential and the commissioning teams of NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group and Leeds City Council.
Dave Whittock, director of service development, says: “Each person we support for the local commissioning team has their own tenancy agreement and front door, regardless of how complex their behavioural needs are.
“With a business commitment to open new services to support people in their homes, Eden Futures’ immediate plans include two further schemes in Hull, and ones in Leeds, Nuneaton, Newark, Stoke and Birmingham. We need to fill 250 full time job posts for professional, skilled workers over the next few years. We’re undertaking a significant recruitment drive to provide specialist assistance for people in supported living.”
Eden Futures helps people who live in their own accommodation by providing the care and support packages they need. It currently assists 650 people across 152 sites.
