Construction has Begun in Inverness on a £4.1m Centre for Those with Learning Difficulties

Construction has finally begun on the Inverness multipurpose centre. This centre is designed for younger people who are suffering from learning disabilities or for those who have very complex needs. The construction is going to consist of around two or three-bedroom flats for younger people and it is going to be suited to those who are up to the age of 30. It is going to have an indoor play centre that comes complete with children’s facilities, and it is also going to have community care. Alongside this development, there is going to be a café, meeting spaces and of course, an outdoor garden which will help people to spend more time outdoors. The principal contractor has come out with a statement, saying that the whole thing is going to last for around 12 months and that the project is being done under the Elsie Normington Foundation.

This foundation was set up in the year 2013 and since then they have awarded Compass Building the chance to take on the contract for the Haven Centre. Elsie Normington has said that the work can now start, and this is going to mark a very significant milestone on the journey. It is also going to help to make the centre life-changing. The fact that the work has started marks a significant milestone in the journey for the people who are working with the centre, and it is also going to give adults the chance to expand their lives with enrichment. It is going to be very interesting to see how things come together and it is also going to be exciting to see how things change from this point on. Who knows what the future holds, but right now, this movement is proving to be positive for the special needs community.
