The Home Design
Livability needs to raise £1.1million by June 2016, to improve facilities in six of our residential care homes for disabled people at John Grooms Court in Norwich, Treetops in Colchester, Dolphin Court in Southend-on-Sea, Brookside in Edgware, New Court Place in Borehamwood and Bradbury Court in Harrow.
Funds generated via this national campaign will be used to transform kitchen areas, en-suites in residents flat and to renew communal bathrooms. We will use the latest approach in design to improve the quality of accommodation offered and increase the use of new specialist equipment such as hoists and adjustable beds that will enable us to maximise the dignity and independence of the residents, many of whom have complex needs.
In December 2014, the East Holton Charity, known as Holton Lee, merged with Livability, and Livability at Holton Lee was created. Livability at Holton Lee is a 350-acre site that is an area of outstanding natural beauty. We are seeking financial support of £1million to:
Nepal Spinal Injury
The earthquake has affected over 8 million people in Nepal. Many have severe injuries and need immediate surgery and aftercare. Livability has launched an urgent appeal to support earthquake survivors who have acquired severe injuries and need lifesaving medical care.
The Spinal Injury Rehabilitation Centre (SIRC) in Nepal is Livability’s partner providing critical care to those that have arrived at the centre. We need to raise £500,000 in the next six months to increase bed space and support to those with spinal injuries.
