Supporting independent living for adults with learning disabilities
We've expanded the existing overnight respite facilities that serve adults with learning disabilities across south Kirklees.
Throughout the programme, we worked with service users and their carers to listen to their thoughts which helped to shape the improvement plans.
The existing service has served the community well since it was initially opened, but we are now seeing more young people entering adulthood with more complex and profound needs including those with Autism who need improved facilities.
The site includes new state-of-the-art facilities including a sensory bathroom, sensory room, quiet room and an immersive room as well as an improved sensory garden.

Throughout the building phase the service will be transferring to alternative premises in Heckmondwike (Crescent Dale) to enable continuity of service for service users and to ensure their carers continue to benefit from taking regular breaks in their caring roles.
