People with autism who have lived off island could now return to Guernsey, after the first homes designed specifically for people with the condition have been completed.
Eight bungalows have been built at Le Vieux Jardin in Vale with specific design features to make them suitable for people with additional sensory needs.
The site includes a sensory garden and sensory gym, as well as additional soundproofing to create calmer surroundings in the home.
The properties will be managed by Guernsey Housing Association with care and support on-site coming from care staff.
Heidi Soulsby, President of the Committee for Health and Social Care, says it provides an opportunity to help those with autism going forward.
The development also includes 20 flats for rent or partial ownership. Along with the cost of staff accommodation, it has cost just over £5 million to build.
