Launching Our New Respite Westgarth Service
On Friday 10th June we were very proud to launch our new Westgarth service in partnership with Calderdale Council, with a special guest the Lord Mayor of Calderdale, Cllr Angie Gallagher
Westgarth has undergone major refurbishment works providing much-improved accommodation for people accessing the service and for staff providing support.
Westgarth provides a respite service enabling safe and comfortable accommodation for adults with learning disabilities, giving them and their carers a welcome break.
The new Westgarth facility has been planned with its users’ needs fully in mind with fully accessible accommodation and bathroom facilities, finished to a high standard. The entire building has been refurbished and remodelled and provides a kitchen, laundry, lounge and dining area, plus office space for staff.
The building also includes a number of self-contained living units to support people to maintain their independence and further develop the skills they need to lead full and active lives.
We are sure all clients who stay at the Westgarth Service will flourish and enjoy many of the great local community facilities, which will further support people staying at the service.
