The first residents of Arden Place, the new specialist housing scheme for people with autism and learning disabilities, started moving in last week!
Arden Place is a new multi-million pound housing scheme opened by housing association Bromford in Tile Cross. The two-storey building contains 14 self-contained one-bedroom apartments, office and communal hub which will host activities, training and employment advice sessions for residents. Outside there’s a communal garden for residents to enjoy.
Bethphage will be providing specialist, person centred support to the residents of Arden Place. Residents will also have access to specialist housing support from Bromford.
Housing enabler Claire Parker said:
“We’re delighted to have opened our latest MyPlace scheme here in Birmingham. Arden Place provides a safe and secure home for people with autism and learning disabilities to live independently in their own home, within a small, friendly community where they can truly thrive. Our in-house construction team have done a brilliant job creating bright, attractive apartments which we know our new residents will feel right at home in. Working together with Bethphage our goal is to provide quality, personalised support to meet the needs of all our customers over the months and years ahead.”
The scheme is close to local shops and healthcare facilities and the Disability Resource Centre, a charity run by disabled people which offers a variety of services that the residents will be able to use, is just a short distance away.
There are still spaces available at Arden Place. Anyone interested in finding out more can contact Claire Parker at Claire.firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07779964439 or find out more about MyPlace Schemes here.
Arden Place is Bromford’s 14th MyPlace scheme and its second to open in Birmingham. The housing association has more than 44,000 properties across the West Midlands and West of England which are home to more than 100,000 people.
