Growing to meet the needs in Hereford
Improving our offering for people with complex disabilities in Herefordshire is taking shape with plans to open a larger day college in the county.
Our continued investment in Hereford began when we opened our new long-term living facility at Ledbury Road, Hereford, providing seven en-suite bedrooms as well as a number of specialist facilities for young people with disabilities.
We now intend to relocate our existing education and therapies provision close to this accommodation. No longer will we lease a building for our day college. Instead, we have committed to raise £2.4m to cover the cost of purchasing and renovating the new combined site.
The improved facilities will make a real difference to students with complex physical and learning disabilities. We’ve allowed for potential further expansion by applying for planning permission for an additional extension in the future.
With works due to be completed this autumn, we’re on the final stretch to raise the funds to finish the project and equip the space with the essentials and, with your help, the specialist equipment required to offer learning opportunities that are second to none.
