Autism Hampshire and Radian launch new specialist accommodation for adults
Autism Hampshire and Radian Group, one of the South’s leading housing providers are pleased to announce the Opening of Orchard House. Working in conjunction with Hampshire County Council and Gosport Borough Council, the five self-contained units are now ready to provide accommodation for people with autism near the seafront in Stokes Bay. This purpose built facility offers 5 purpose built supported living apartments for people with autism and is also a welcome development for the local economy as it could create new jobs in the social care sector.
Debra Harrison-Sales, CEO of Autism Hampshire, said: “Autism Hampshire prides itself on providing quality services to individuals with autism through our specialist services and community based projects. We are extremely pleased that these purpose built apartments will offer first class semi-independent living to people who use our services.“
Andrea Smith, Director of Development & New Business at Radian Group said:
“We hope that this new project will lead to similar developments across the region. Our expertise in delivering purpose built accommodation for people with autism is coupled with the excellent support services offered by Autism Hampshire. We aim to make sure that the people who come to live in this new accommodation will be happy and become an active and integral part of their local community.”
