The fourth of Bromford’s specially designed MyPlace schemes is due to open its doors at the end of March 2017 and you’re invited to come and have a look round.

Lea Hall Place in Rugeley will offer adults with a learning disability the opportunity to live independently in their own home. The scheme has 14 self-contained one-bedroom apartments which have been specifically designed to provide a safe and secure long-term home for people living with a disability.

The one bedroom apartments are specially designed to provide a happy, safe and secure home for people with long-term conditions. With your own front door and the freedom to live your life the way you want to, MyPlace offers a home for life. If you like to mix with other people, Lea Hall Place will also have a community hub with a lounge, meeting room and kitchen providing a social area for you to get to know your neighbours.

Open days - 16 and 17 March 2017

Before we officially open the doors to Lea Hall Place, we’d like to invite you to come and have good look round. You’ll have the opportunity to chat to our team and get all your questions answered – there might even be some cake on offer too!

MyPlace has been shortlisted for two national awards recently and we’re really proud of being able to create such a supportive environment for some of the most vulnerable members of our society to set up safe and secure homes for life.

Samuel Place in Redditch is home to 14 people who have a learning disability. Here’s what living at a MyPlace scheme means to some of them…

Heather’s parents are so proud of what their daughter has achieved since moving into her new flat at Samuel Place. They were concerned about her future as they recognised that they were getting older and didn’t know what would happen to her when they were no longer able to look after her.

They have seen a real difference in her over the past few months, they said: “Her confidence has grown thanks to spending more time in the community hub. She used to spend a lot of time with us and didn’t really like being with other people but since she’s been at Samuel Place she’s been socialising with others and learning new skills - her self-esteem has grown so much that she’s even started going to craft sessions in local the community.

“When Heather was at home she would make the odd cup of tea and maybe a piece of toast but since she’s been living at Samuel Place she’s becoming far more independent. She’s now got a recipe folder and she makes her own shopping lists and prepares her own meals. She’s also doing her own washing and ironing - a step up from just tidying her bedroom.”

Christine is nearly 60 years-old and moved into her flat in February 2016 having previously had problems with her neighbours and not having the right support around her. She said: “I enjoyed setting up my new flat and buying lots of nice new things – it’s really good being able to choose what I want. I’ve got a bird table outside my window and enjoy watching the birds. I’ve made new friends since moving here and being close to the town means that I can go out on my own and do what I want to.”

Christopher is 24 and moved into his own apartment in March 2016. Since moving out of his parent’s home to become more independent he says that he is able to do his own food shopping, has made lots of new friends and has enjoyed learning new skills and completing house-hold chores. Chris says that he’s excited for the future.
