A COLNE supported housing scheme has been shortlisted for a national award.

Limes Place provides 11 specially designed flats and 24-hour support for people living with mental health conditions, learning disabilities or physical disabilities.

Registered manager Suzanne Horsley and her team will find out if they are the winners at the Great British Care Awards at a gala awards evening att Manchester's Midland Hotel on Saturday.

Limes Place is in the running for the Housing with Care award, which recognises developments which help people remain independent in their own homes.

The not-for-profit housing scheme opened on Argyle Street in December,

Managed by national adult health and social care charity Making Space, it was rated ‘good’ by the CQC, the health and social care watchdog at its first inspection in August this year.

Paula Spence, performance and quality manager, Making Space, said: “Care is 100 per cent person-centred at Limes Place.

“The team knows each tenant personally and spend time with them as equals providing support, not as people who are imposing a routine or checking up on them. Limes Place is part of the community."
