Supported living for people in Warrington dealing with enduring mental health challenges has improved with the launch of our new development in the town.
Members of Warrington District Council, along with MP Helen Jones, celebrated the opening of our Quadrant House development, which is based on Church Street.
Comprising of 16 apartments, Quadrant House provides a safe home environment for adults with enduring mental health problems. Specialist staff are on-site 24 hours a day to provide comprehensive support, as and when required.
The £1.8 million development is the result of a partnership between HB Villages, Inclusion Housing CIC and Lifeways Community Care.
Mayor Faisal Rashid officially opened the building, along with Helen Jones MP.
Helen Jones MP, said:
“I’m proud that Warrington is leading the way in terms of investment in specialist supported housing. It is important to me that we take care of the most vulnerable people in our society. This HB Villages scheme goes a long way in providing a safe and comfortable environment for people with enduring mental health challenges. It is important that people are given the opportunity, with developments like this, to live as independently as possible.”
Alastair Sheehan, Development and Planning Director of HB Villages, said:
“Quadrant House was one of our first specialist supported living developments and it is fantastic to see the positive impact it is having on the residents who live here.
“The tenants are integrating well into the local community and they continue to make progress with their overall health. We’re currently looking at more locations in the region and we are proud to showcase Quadrant House as a fine example of what positive outcomes can be achieved for vulnerable people with the right kind of housing and support services.”
Jemima Taylor, Group Development Director of Lifeways, adds:
“Lifeways is committed to providing innovative homes for adults with a range of needs including those who suffer from enduring mental health problems. Quadrant House delivers a safe environment with onsite care staff, while also providing a home to call their own. Tenants will be able to live as independently as possible while receiving the right support.”
Peter Ottowell, Chairman at Inclusion Housing, said:
“Quadrant House is a prime example of what can be delivered through innovative partnerships that put the service users at the heart of everything we do. Inclusion Housing are proud to be a part of the strong working partnership with HB Villages, Lifeways and the Local Authority that has brought the project to this point. We look forward to seeing how our tenants develop with improvements in their health and wellbeing and will continue to deliver high quality homes for the most vulnerable members of society.”
