Marika 3! A New Single Person Unit

It might not be the most exciting name at the moment, but it is going to be a life-changing project for one of the people we support. In our continual drive towards increasing personalisation, we are building a one-person, self-contained unit on the grounds of Marika House.

This has been designed specifically for one of the people who live in the main house. They have been having increasing problems sharing the main house with other people but really wanted to stay. So, after a lot of conversations with everyone, getting planning permission and finally, approval by building control, work has started!

It will be a little bit of madness around the home for the next 20 weeks. We will be minimising the effects for all and hoping for a dry summer.

So, the trucks and diggers are moving on to the site…

And the hole for the foundations has started to be dug and a fence to keep everyone safe.
