A few short weeks after the launch of our second care leavers scheme, we’re delighted to launch our third development.
This new scheme will allow us to provide supported accommodation for four more young people aged 16-18, as they move out of the care system and into independent accommodation.
Our three care leaver schemes provide a flexible support system for 11 young people. Each scheme is managed by our dedicated care and support staff, who are based on site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They provide access to education, training and employment opportunities, along with everyday life skills such as budgeting and cooking.
All schemes benefit from shared kitchen and dining facilities, with individual bedrooms for all residents.
Andy Carberry, Director of Care and Support for Regenda Homes, said: “I’m really excited to launch our third care leavers scheme. We’ve been managing this service for over three years and have supported countless young people into independent accommodation. This is a much needed and innovative service that makes a real difference to the lives of young care leavers.”
M&Y Maintenance and Construction, which is part of The Regenda Group, fully refurbished the property, installing a new bathroom and en suite facilities and ensuring that the property meets the latest fire regulations.
Gill Kelly, Managing Director of M&Y Maintenance and Construction, said: “This is the second property we have refurbished for Regenda Homes’ Care and Support service and we have done so under incredibly challenging conditions. It’s testament to our planned delivery team that this property has been completed to such a high standard while maintaining safe working practices around Covid-19. We’re very proud of both schemes.”
Our inhouse development team arranged the acquisition of this property and identified the works needed to meet specifications.
Kate Carley, Development Project Manager, said: “Seeing this property being transformed from an empty three bedroom house into a stunning four bedroom home has been incredible. M&Y Maintenance and Construction carried out all works to the highest standards and this property will genuinely make a difference to the lives of young care leavers. Schemes like this are why I love my job.”
