New supported housing scheme opens in Telford

Customer Gardening

We’ve recently opened a new supported housing scheme in Telford.

Christine Avenue is a four bedroom 24-hour supported living service for adults with learning difficulties and physical health needs. All customers have their own tenancy with First Choice Housing, a housing association who provide quality accommodation solutions for people with disabilities, veterans and additional complex needs across Wales and Shropshire.

At Christine Avenue we support customers in a variety of ways. We help develop skills that people need to maintain their home, build on healthy lifestyles, offer support with learning difficulties, physical needs and personal care which often includes medication administration, socialisation, volunteering, training opportunities and budget support.

Customers are referred through their social worker team to our registered manager.

Our first customer, Andrew Neary moved in on 8 July and is pictured doing some gardening.

Registered Manager at Christine Avenue Natalie Thomas said: “We’re really pleased to have opened this new supported housing service. Christine Avenue provides much needed support in the Telford and Wrekin area, and it is already having a really positive impact on the customers who live here”.

To find out more about Christine Avenue please contact Natalie Thomas.
