MAYOR OF DUDLEY OPENS CAMPHILL VILLAGE TRUST’S NEW COMMUNITY PROJECT
The trust, which provides homes within a supportive community environment for people of all abilities, saw its newest home at 4 Norton Road opened by Councillor Mohammed Hanif this month.
Camphill has operated in Stourbridge for over forty years. Presently sixty people receive a variety of support including residential care, domiciliary care and supported living. Activities include a thriving horticultural project, pottery and a local coffee shop and café.
The development is part of CVT’s ‘Berith and Camphill Partnership’ and consists of The Pavillion, a new build with six wheelchair accessible apartments, Berith House, a completely refurbished house with four self-contained apartments and Berith Hall.
Ian Laing, CVT’s general manager, said: “This is a local project for local people. It adds to our portfolio of properties in Dudley and provides opportunities for local people.
“The combination of accommodation and communal hall enables us to further integrate and provide a service to the community.”
The new development was designed by Manchester architects Pozzoni and built by contractor, Speller Metcalfe.
Bill Cave, Director at Speller Metcalfe said: “It has been a pleasure working with Camphill Village Trust on this special development, creating high quality homes within a caring and supportive environment. ”
