St Barts Supported Living Development in Sandwich

5th June 2024


Good to take time away from campaigning this morning to visit the excellent new St Barts supported living development in Sandwich.

The former KCC nursing home has undergone a transformation and when full will now offer a cluster of fifteen self-contained flats for Kent residents with autism or learning disabilities and in need of supported housing.

The scheme will be run by Turning Point, currently celebrating its 60th Anniversary with an exhibition in Kensington Palace, and has been realised with the backing of Civitas, SSL, KCC and the NHS as well as Turning Point.

‘This is a truly remarkable development’ says Roger Gale who visited the project prior to its full occupancy. ‘St Barts is set to make a massive difference to the lives of it’s residents who will, some for the first time, experience the dignity of real independence’.
