Together we did it! Thank you to everyone for supporting our Building a Brighter Future Appeal. We achieved the fundraising target and we completed the new accommodation on time and in budget.

Students moved in to their new accommodation in September 2023.

Scott House and Bradbury House each have six ensuite bedrooms suitable for students with complex disabilities. Large accessible kitchens and sociable living spaces will help students develop their independence.

Also, the Ingram Discovery Rooms will be a dedicated space to assess the care needs of new students. The rooms will also help students learn how to use the latest gadgets to support their future independent living skills.

The gardens have been designed for wheelchair users in mind. We have selected plants for their texture and smell for sensory learners to enjoy.

The building has many sustainability features. From a sedum roof to attract wildlife, solar panels and low energy lighting throughout.
