Supported living service Eden Futures creates 40 new roles in Midlands

A UK provider of supported living services is creating more than 40 roles as it launches new accommodation places across Nottingham and Stoke-on-Trent over the next few months.

Eden Futures, which supports adults with learning disabilities, challenging behaviour, mental illness and autism across the Midlands and the North of England, is working in partnership with Nottingham City Council and Hilldale Housing Association to provide the new accommodation.
The service in Nottingham, which comprises eight self-contained apartments and two four-bed houses in the city, will create 30 new jobs. The company is already accepting job applications on its website.

Each of the self-contained apartments has its own bathroom, bedroom, kitchen and lounge-diner, while the shared accommodation includes a shared garden for residents to enjoy. Assistive technologies and an on-site staff hub enables Eden Futures to provide 24/7 support to its service users as and when required. The two shared houses have access to their own garden and living room. The development in Stoke is made up of seven apartments in the Northwood area and is expected to create 12 new jobs.
