New flats will give young people 'a real chance'

“It is marvellous to see this project finally come to fruition. The living accommodation and office space has been converted to a very high standard and we’re delighted to see that the SLDC grant of £100,000 which has enabled this scheme, will give these young people a real chance not only to live in the community, but also to feel safe.”

– Cllr Jonathan Brook, portfolio holder for Strategic Growth
