Two housing associations have opened a development of new homes in Hayes for people in housing need.
Sessile Court was built in partnership between Thames Valley Housing, Ability Housing and Hillingdon Council to provide 24 affordable homes, 15 of which are supported accommodation exclusively for residents in the borough.
The building is split into two self contained blocks, each with their own entrance and parking facilities. The properties have been built with a high quality, modern design. Residents living there are within easy walking distance of local schools and transport.
Geeta Nanda, Chief Executive of Thames Valley Housing; David Williams, Chief Executive of Ability Housing and Councillor Philip Corthorne, Lead Member for Social Services, Health and Housing at Hillingdon Council yesterday opened the new development.
Geeta Nanda said: “Both Ability Housing and Hillingdon Council are great partners and it is because of their support that we can provide much needed affordable homes to Hayes.”
David Williams said: ““This is a great example of how high quality supported living can transform people’s lives, thanks to the shared vision of the partners and dedication of the support team on site.”
Councillor Philip Corthorne said: “Hillingdon Council is delighted to be supporting the Sessile Court development along with Thames Valley Housing and Ability Housing to provide excellent supported housing, which will give residents with complex needs an opportunity to lead more independent lives, maximise their recovery and be part of their local community.”
