Work to build a new Voyage Care Supported Living service for adults with learning disabilities and complex needs will get underway in Wolverhampton with a ground breaking ceremony to mark the beginning of the £2.1m project.
The ceremony will take place on site in Barnard Road, Ashmore Park, on Tuesday 7 March at 11am.
The service will be a purpose-built development with 16 sole occupancy Supported Living flats. The flats will all be capable of accommodating a wide range of specialist equipment to meet each person’s individual needs.
Hallgate Construction Ltd is the Principal Contractor and work is expected to be completed at the end of October 2017.
Voyage Care is a specialist provider with over 25 years’ experience of supporting individuals with complex needs such as learning disabilities, physical disabilities, and autistic spectrum conditions.
Voyage Care CEO Andrew Cannon said: “It is really exciting that we are finally breaking ground on the Barnard Road site. We are responding to a growing need for these kind of facilities in Wolverhampton, many people are forced to move away from the area because there is nowhere to provide the level of care and support that they require.
“By investing in this new service we are providing specialist care and support that is badly needed in this area. We are looking forward to becoming part of the vibrant local community.”Michael Walker, Managing Director for Hallgate Construction Ltd said: “We are proud to be engaged by Voyage Care to construct such a prestigious development which will, undoubtedly, be an asset to the local community.”
