A HIGH street unit has been revamped into a community hub to support adults with disabilities and mental health issues.

Outreach Community and Residential Services, which provides residential support for adults aged 18 and over who have learning disabilities and/or mental health needs, has moved into 35-37 Blackburn Street, Radcliffe.

The town centre site, formerly home to DIY shop The Homemakers Inn, has undergone a major refurbishment ahead of its open day today.

Quality & Staff Development Manager Bev Shaw said: “Everyone is invited to come along and hear our plans for the future. It is also an opportunity for people to make suggestions about the activities they would like to see happening in our community rooms.”

Outreach began renting the site in early September last year. Since then, construction teams have been installing walls and partitions within the premises, and building office spaces, staff toilets, a kitchen, recreational space, therapy room, café and accessible toilets.

The long-term aim of the care agency, formerly based at Redbank House in Cheetham Hill, is to provide services seven days per week. They also envisage the café providing training and volunteering opportunities.

The open day will be held from 10am to 5pm.
