Work Begins on New Housing Project to Support People at Risk of Homelessness in West Lancashire

Ring Stones has begun work on a new supported housing development in Skelmersdale in partnership with West Lancashire Borough Council, The Birchwood Centre, and Calico Homes, part of The Calico Group.

The £2.7m project, located in Birch Green, will create 24 new short-stay apartments for young people and adults with complex needs who are experiencing or are at risk of homelessness.

Residents will benefit from professional support with their life skills, health, and wellbeing, alongside support to develop their skills and employability to assist them when moving on to permanent accommodation.

The building will also include provision for training and outreach work and will support other workstreams managed by The Birchwood Centre and their partners.

The build has also created an additional role for a general operative, helping to boost local employment opportunities. The development is due to complete in December 2022.
