Work is beginning on Hull’s new flagship Extra Care homes project.

The £80 million housing scheme will be spread across three Hull locations.

The 316 apartments are primarily designed to cater for an increasing amount of city people with care requirements.

John Black, a Hull city councillor with special responsibilities for infrastructure, says the project will bring together housing, support and care under the same roof. The homes should also bring residents more independence.

The scheme is aimed at helping disabled people, older people and those suffering with dementia and other mental health conditions.

The easily-adaptable accommodation means that occupiers can go on living in the same community, even if their needs alter over the years. Residents will have security as well as access to support and care.

Cllr Black says that job and training opportunities are further benefits of the programme, which offers properties with one or two bedrooms.

The scheme involves a partnership between Riverside housing association, Wates Living Space and the city council.
