Market Drayton Repatriation Project


wellbeing / live

A campus of buildings that offers supported living for adults with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour, consisting of a 4No. bedroom challenging behaviour unit, 4No. single occupant bedroom flats, a 2 bedroom “moving on” bungalow and a 3 bedroom supported living bungalow.

The site of this medium secure unit was chosen to help imbed the residential care home within an active community with easy access to local services and facilities.

The buildings are designed to be homely with a definite domestic aesthetic to the overall development. Each unit is designed to provide a different level of support to suit the service users needs on their progression through the service and out to independent living within the community.

Built on a former builders merchants yard, the site witnessed a significant removal of ground contaminants, prior to development taking place, to remedy the site safe to build on.

The development was completed in April 2015 and successfully passed an audit by the Care Quality Commission, with the first residents taking occupancy in June 2015.
