SOCIAL CARE PROVIDER CREATES MORE THAN 40 JOBS THROUGH NEW SERVICES

Eden Futures New Accommodation

Supported living services provider Eden Futures is enhancing its service provision over the next few months by launching 17 new accommodation places across Nottingham and Stoke-on-Trent. 

Eden Futures supports adults with learning disabilities, challenging behaviour, mental illness and autism across the Midlands and the North of England. It’s working in partnership with Nottingham City Council and Hilldale Housing Association to provide the new accommodation. 

The service in Nottingham, which comprises eight self-contained apartments and two four-bed houses in the city, will create 30 new jobs. The company is already accepting job applications on its website. 

Each of the self-contained apartments has its own bathroom, bedroom, kitchen and lounge-diner, while the shared accommodation includes a shared garden for residents to enjoy. Assistive technologies and an on-site staff hub enable Eden Futures to provide 24/7 support to its service users as and when required. The two shared houses have access to their own garden and living room. The development in Stoke, which is a first for the organisation in the city, is made up of seven apartments in the Northwood area and is expected to create twelve new jobs. 

Commenting on the new services, Dave Whittock, Director of Service Development at Eden Futures, said: “As a member of the Restraint Reduction Network, we’re committed to reducing the requirement for restrictive practices in the health and social care sector. We’re therefore delighted to be providing alternative accommodation options to those who may otherwise be living in a residential care home or acute hospital provision.

“Last year, we established seven new or expanded developments to our portfolio, increasing the care and support we provide across 167 sites. We look forward to launching more supported living provision in England during 2020.”

First established in 1994, Eden Futures has grown substantially in recent years and now employs over 1,200 people. The team provides care and support to 650 service users - ensuring they’re able to live independently in the community while occupying shared houses, sole apartments and specialist bungalows.
