Building Number Eight

We recently purchased a new site in the heart of Mill Hill East. We have submitted a planning application to the Council and hope to begin works soon

Our plans

We have developed a state-of-the-art scheme consisting of 30 much needed mobility apartments including 7 two-bedroom apartments to meet the current and future housing and support needs of people in our community. This new development will enable us to transform more lives of people living with physical disabilities and / or impaired vision who are struggling to cope in accommodation that is totally unsuitable to their needs.

Facilities

The apartments will be designed to meet the needs of people with physical disabilities or impaired vision using latest technology and equipment, with:

  • Accessible modern fitted kitchens
  • Walk in shower rooms to accommodate wheelchairs
  • Communal laundry facilities – with accessible machines
  • A communal lounge
  • Garden and roof terrace
  • Tenants parking

Timescale

Once we have secured planning permission we will finalise detailed plans and start working onsite. Our fundraising team will be talking to our generous supporters, individuals & families, Trusts and Foundations to do all we can to raise the additional funds needed to complete this development. We anticipate works will start in early 2022 with completion expected late 2023.

Fundraising for Building Number Eight

As an independent organisation that receives no government funding, all of our developments have to date been funded with the support and generosity of the community. The site has been purchased thanks to recent fundraising efforts and the generous support of a few individuals who left us gifts in their wills. The cost of the works required will be in the region of £9 million. We have embarked on a fundraising campaign to raise the additional £4.5 million required to complete required works.
