Wolsley House has been refurbished for users

The newly refurbished Wolsley House officially reopened today (Monday) and is ready for the first of its residents to move in.

The building on Wolsley Close has been designed to provide rehabilitation for disabled people and emergency accommodation temporarily for older people who have been left homeless.

Adults with disabilities and the elderly can use stay inside the seven newly-refurbished flats if they are unable to manage at home.

The flats have also been designed to help people get back on their feet after a hospital stay or a recent crisis.

Two further flats provide emergency accommodation for older people who are homeless while suitable accommodation is found for them.

Brad Smith, Bexley’s cabinet member for Adults’ Services, said: “We are working with our colleagues in the NHS and the voluntary sector to help people who want to live in their own homes for as long as possible.

“We mobilise as quickly as we can to put services in place to reduce the need for a hospital stay and to help people stay independent.”
