Redcar, North East England – A new purpose-built home for adults with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASS) is being built on the site of the former Stead hospital.

The Northern Echo reports that it will provide 12 single en-suite bedrooms, large lounge and separate dining room and a quiet room.

The environment will be optimised for individuals on the autistic spectrum with the use of therapeutic colours.

Managing director of Craegmoor, Sarah Hughes who are investing £1.8m in the project is quoted as saying:

“This specialist service for individuals with autism has been welcomed by local health and social care professionals and will bring high-quality; much needed care provision to Redcar and the surrounding area.”

The second phase will provide flats to help individuals live independently.

35 new jobs will be created for the local area. An information event is being held at Tuned In, Majuba Road, Redcar on Thursday, January 23 between 1.30pm and 3.30pm.

The project is expected to open in May
