25 jobs to be created at Derby home for people with challenging behaviour

Twenty five jobs are to be created in Derby as work nears completion on a complex which will house people with challenging behaviour.

Eden Futures, a company which specialises in supported living services for adults, is set to open a new site in Allenton in late January 2021.

To ensure the site runs properly, Eden Futures is looking to recruit 25 support workers over the next three to nine months.

The site will have 12 self-contained apartments and three new build specialist bungalows, and is expected to begin taking in users in early 2021.

Among those who could use the services at the site are adults with challenging behaviour, learning disabilities, autism, as well as people enduring mental ill health.

The scheme has been worked through in collaboration with Adult Social Care commissioners at Derby City Council, social landlord Inclusion Housing, Minster Developments and Specialist Supported Living Ltd.

Dave Whittock, director of service development at Eden Futures, said: “Every person we support has their own tenancy agreement and their own front door, regardless of how complex their behavioural needs are.

“We’ve helped many people to live in their own home in their own community.

“This is achieved by working alongside them with the cooperation of developers, commissioners, landlords and health professionals.

“This allows us to identify potential new sites where the right accommodation can be built, with the right support system around it so it can operate sustainably, like here in Derby.”
