Southend MP visits Dolphin Court

James Duddridge MP for Rochford and Southend East visited the Dolphin Court care home on Friday 10 June.

It was a great opportunity for residents and staff to talk to their MP on a variety of issues close to their hearts including the accessibility to the town centre for disabled people with mobility restrictions as well as their concerns around local housing provision, including adapted housing.

At the end of the discussion James Duddridge MP also urged residents to get in touch with any issues that he can be of assistance with in the future.

Dolphin Court is home to 16 adults with a variety of disabilities and is based in Southend on Sea. The home is run by Livability.

James Duddridge MP also offered staff and residents a specially selected bottle of whiskey from the House of Commons which is to be auctioned at an upcoming fundraising event for the care home.

Louis Chan Kee, Dolphin Court care manager said: ”We are delighted to have been able to welcome James Duddridge MP at Dolphin Court. The visit was a great success as it was an opportunity to put our residents concerns directly to the MP. Our residents want to be able to be part of their local community and this is why access issues are so crucial to them.”
