Inclusion and HBV secures their first supported living development in Scotland

24th June 2019

We are delighted to confirm we have agreed our first deal in Scotland to deliver new apartments for disabled adults in Leith, Edinburgh.

Heron Court, on West Bowling Green Street, will become a specialist new build 24-apartment development for people with a range of learning and physical disabilities.

Tenants will be referred to the scheme by adult social care commissioners at Edinburgh City Council. Lifeways will be the care provider and Inclusion Housing is the Registered Provider.

Alastair Sheehan, business development director of HBV, said: “We are delighted to get work started on our first scheme in Scotland and we hope this will be the first of many. We have received tremendous support and encouragement from Edinburgh City Council and the wider community. Our development provides the opportunity for local adults with disabilities to have their own home, but, with the added benefit of 24-hour on-site support staff. When blended at the outset with our assistive technology offering, outcomes for tenants are greatly enhanced.

We were also delighted to welcome pupils and teachers from Taobh Na Pairce Primary School who learned more about the scheme, the materials we are using and the development process.
