Welshpool sheltered housing development nears completion
December 15, 2020
A housing development in Welshpool is nearing completion, and will provide accommodation for 10 people, enabling them to live independently, closer to their home communities.
Following a procurement exercise, Castell Care and Support, part of the Wales & West Housing Group, were successful in entering a 5 year contract for the provision of support.
The project will lead to approximately 30 new jobs in the town supporting people in their own homes.
Castell Care and Support is currently recruiting for the posts at https://castellventures.wales/en/careers/
Councillor Myfanwy Alexander is Cabinet Member with responsibility for Adult Social Care with the council. She commented: "This is a great opportunity to provide accommodation which allows people needing extra support to live with independence and dignity."
The individuals will have the opportunity to have access some of the latest technology along with the availability of support on site, which will support them to achieve independence within their own home.
The project is another example of partnership between the Council and the Wales & West Housing Group and follows on from the ExtraCare project in Newtown (Llys Glan yr Afon) which opened in 2016.
Luke Reeves, Managing Director of Castell Ventures, said: "We're extremely excited to be providing care and support to the people moving to Cae Glas.
"We're passionate about making a difference to people's lives and proud that we are able to play a part in supporting people in their new homes. Not only will Cae Glas have a positive impact on the lives of the people moving in, it will also bring new jobs to the Welshpool area, boosting the local economy."
