The Pines project is a finalist at the National Learning Disabilities and Autism Awards

The Pines project is a finalist at the National Learning Disabilities and Autism Awards

Held at the ICC in Birmingham last week, the awards celebrate excellence in the support provided for people with learning disabilities and pays tribute to those individuals or organisations that excel in providing quality care.

calfordseaden project, The Pines, was nominated for the Supported Housing Award at this year’s Awards. John Green was invited to attend the awards, alongside MCCH’s Head of Property Services, David Holt and the Executive Director of Housing & Business Development, Richard Webb.

The Pines provides accommodation for people with learning disabilities. It is fully wheelchair accessible and internally adaptable so that it can meet the changing health and physical needs of the young people living there. The accommodation includes 16 self-contained flats and a care team office, giving people greater independence. calfordseaden was appointed to provide Employer’s Agent services for the scheme by MCCH, who won the same award in 2015.

The guest speaker and compere for the evening was Christopher Biggins, who bought his unique sense of humour to the awards. Unfortunately on this occasion, The Pines did not win the overall category but did make runner up.
