National Care Group invests in specialist supported living setting

National Care Group's 8 Acres site

National Care Group has invested £500,000 in a specialist supported living setting, as part of an improvement programme across its portfolio.

Money has been invested into the 8 Acres site in Norfolk, which supports 17 vulnerable adults, each with a specialist set of needs.

Improvements have been made to its grounds and housing facilities, including new kitchens and bathrooms in flats.

Supported adults had their say on the redecoration of their bedrooms, with themes, colour choices and flooring options, alongside sensory items, and wall furnishings, tailored to stimulate their development and needs.

James Allen, National Care Group chief executive, said: ‘Investing in our sites is part of a continual improvement programme at National Care Group to enable the people we support to reach their full potential.

‘The services provided at 8 Acres are testament to this philosophy, building in not just the essentials but a range of sensory and homely improvements that help both the people we support and their team to feel empowered in their surroundings.

‘With the further development in the pipeline for next year, this is a site that is only going to continue to improve in its quality of surroundings. It will provide an environment for the people we support to be involved in meaningful activities that enhance their lives and wellbeing.’
