Avon Place, a Lifeways purpose-built supported living service in Warwickshire, set to welcome up to 6 people in June
The final stages of construction are well under way for Avon Place, a new purpose-built supported living service in Studley, Warwickshire, with the service set to open in June.
Once open, Avon Place’s team will support up to six adults aged 18-65 to live an independent lifestyle in the community, with support available when needed.
Avon Place’s team will be at the service 24/7. The service is ideal for people who live with autism, learning disabilities, and complex needs.
The service, which will be run by Lifeways, has been commissioned by Warwickshire County Council, in conjunction with specialist property developers HomeLife.
Spread over two floors, Avon Place has six self-contained one-bedroom apartments.
Each apartment has a large open-plan kitchen, lounge and dining room, and wet room-style bathrooms. Avon Place also has a private, enclosed garden with a patio for people to socialise.
Every apartment is equipped with an intercom system, and a Support Team call system which can be tailored with assistive technology to suit individual needs.
“I’m excited to see the progress made at Avon Place,” said Ros Creamer, Lifeways’ Community Engagement and Development Manager for the West Midlands.
“It will be great to see people living fulfilling lives, with freedom and choice as part of the community but with the security of having the onsite Support Team to offer assistance when needed.”
Lifeways is the UK’s largest team of support professionals. At 1,500 supported living and residential services, we provide support to adults in the community.
We help individuals living with complex needs such as autism, learning disabilities, mental health conditions, acquired brain injury, physical disabilities, and other complex needs to live more fulfilled, independent lives.More news and events
