Willow House development in Midsomer Norton, UK – A supported housing scheme for people with autism has been nominated for a national UK Housing Award.

The new build by social housing landlord Curo supports young adults with autism and Asperger syndrome.

Willow House has made it to the finals of the Small Development of the Year category.

Curo, Bath and North East Somerset Council and the National Autistic Society created a partnership for the development.

The Somerset Guardian reports that:

‘The development consists of five individual one-bedroom flats, a communal lounge, and supported accommodation. The concept behind the scheme is to allow individuals with similar needs to live independently with a flexible support package.’

Architects worked with the residents to design an autism-friendly building.

The award winners will be revealed in April at a ceremony in London
