The accommodation enables disabled people to learn how to live more independent lives.

 

With the latest equipment and facilities adapted for disabled people, the flat has private kitchens and bathrooms, allowing three disabled people to cook meals, wash and dress without assistance.

 

 

The project was supported by a grant from the Monday Charitable Trust and the accessible kitchens were donated and fitted by Howdens Joinery. 

 

It has been completed in the month the home, which currently supports 38 physically disabled people, marks its 60th anniversary.
