Supported living apartments


Saltbank Court houses eight adults with a range of disabilities. Space and lots of natural light create a bright, homely atmosphere. Instead of a single bedroom, each resident has an apartment with a lounge, bedroom, fitted kitchen and a bathroom adapted to their particular needs. The kitchens have lockable storage for medication and hazardous substances. Ground floor flats have patio doors leading to a small garden. The rear of the building features a communal patio and garden area. There's a feature staircase and lifts to the first floor where there's one of two communal lounges providing space to meet up with friends and family. The communal lounges have kitchenettes with a kettle, toaster and microwave. To maximise living space, there are buggy stores on both floors. Saltbank Court replaces an outdated facility and has transformed a somewhat institutionalised lifestyle to one of greater independence. It's a far cry from previous approaches to accomodating and caring for people with special needs.

The development was led by Staffordshire County Council in partnership with The Wrekin Housing Trust, Choices, Galliford Try, Stafford and Surrounds Clinical Commissioning Group, the Homes and Communities Agency and Stafford Borough Council. The on-site care is provided by Voyage Care.
