Bridgewell Supported Living

The purpose of this report is to present options for delivery of four 5-bed supported living apartments at the Bridgewell site and seek approval of the recommended option - council to build and thereafter appoint the Registered Provider (RP) and a separate Care & Support provider. Supported Living enables people with a learning disability and/or autism to live independently, whether in shared accommodation or in their own home. By investing in good quality home styled accommodation, the Council will continue to demonstrate its commitment to ensuring that people are supported to be independent, resilient, physically and emotionally healthy.
