A new respite care facility for people with profound learning disabilities has opened in Eastfield.

Kelly’s Place, run by Happy Futures, is a bespoke two-bedroom bungalow in Burnside, featuring en-suite bathrooms, tracker hoists and ample moving space for wheelchairs.

Support at Kelly’s Place is offered by skilled support workers, expertly trained to support those with profound disabilities and complex needs.

Angela Fletcher, managing director at Happy Futures, said: “What we now have is an incredible facility that will go a little way towards addressing the demand for short-term respite care.”
