Working together, Gloucestershire County Council and the CCG are continuing to transform services for people of all ages who have a learning disability, autism, challenging behaviour or a mental health condition.

They have transformed Coombe End in Gloucester, which used to be a residential home, into eight independent, purpose-built flats to support people with severe learning difficulties and behavioural challenges.

The new houses will help people to live independently. Each person who lives there will have the opportunity to develop and strengthen their social and daily living skills, allowing them to take their rightful places in our community.

The development is the result of two years of joint working between Gloucestershire County Council, the CCG, Brandon Trust and Advance Housing. It has been built in line with the government’s national plan, Building the Right Support.
