The Mayor of Camden, Cllr Jonathan Simpson, has opened an Origin Housing development in Haverstock specially designed for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities in Camden.
The new development is a remodelled existing Origin Housing property, which was previously a five-bedroom shared supported housing scheme, and is now a high specification three-bedroom wheelchair accessible home, with excellent quality shared facilities.
The property now meets the needs of the new residents, who are all young adults with complex health needs and specific communication requirements.
Twenty-four hour on site specialist care and support for the residents will be provided by Origin Housing and Creative Support.
The Mayor of Camden, Cllr John Simpson, said: “There is very high demand for accommodation like this across Camden and in fact the whole of London. This project is one that Origin should be proud of for many years to come.”
Origin Housing’s Director of People Services, Cathy McCarthy, said: “Camden Council approached us as they wanted to be able to move several young people with specific needs, back into the borough, close to their families and communities.
“Throughout the process, this has been an example of partnership working between Origin Housing, the local borough, Creative Support, the contractors, and of course, the families of the residents themselves. We are very proud of the end result.”
