Black Country: Care service is set for launch; WOLVERHAMPTON.
The scheme, at Swan Bank, Penn, will be launched tomorrow following requests from carers to expand the current short break service.
Coun Pat Byrne, chairman of the Learning Disability Partnership Board, will join guests for the ceremony.
The service supports adults who have a profound learning disability. Autism or Down's Syndrome.
The former caretakers' building in Penn has been renovated to include state-of-the-art technology and space for four adults to stay.
While those who stay learn new skills to make them more independent, their carers and families can have a break.
Families and carers of adults with learning disabilities can take a break, thanks to the partnership with Wolverhampton Social Services and Golden Lane Housing Association.
The conversion followed consultation with service users, carers and families and includes adapted bathing facilities and 24-hour care.
