Coast & Country has announced the third development in its successful Redcare programme, The Cliffs in Brotton.

The Cliffs will provide 25 bungalows with care and support delivered to meet a range of needs, to enable people to retain their independence for longer.

The third development to be delivered through the ‘Redcare’ partnership between Coast & Country Housing, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council and developer Galliford Try Partnerships North East to provide extra care housing for older and vulnerable people across Redcar and Cleveland, The Cliffs follows The Dunes in Redcar, which opened in April 2017 and The Shore in Ormesby.    It will be part-funded with a Homes & Communities Agency grant of £575,000.

Jason Lowe, Head of Independent & Supported Living at Coast & Country, said:   “Coast & Country is about more than just housing and the Redcare developments are indicative of projects that offer a holistic package of housing and support.

“The Cliffs will provide much needed housing to support Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council’s long-term strategy of supporting older and vulnerable people to live in their own homes for longer.

“The Borough has an ageing population and a key aim of Coast & Country, and the council, is to focus on providing independent living opportunities.

“We are proud of the two Redcare schemes, The Dunes and The Shore, and expect The Cliffs to provide the same high quality, and to be equally popular.”

Sara Holmes, Development Director with Galliford Try Partnerships North East, commented:  “We are delighted to be working alongside Coast & Country and the council to improve the quality and choice of homes available for people living in Redcar and Cleveland. “

Councillor David Walsh, Cabinet Member for Adults, said: “This shows both the council’s and Coast & Country Housing’s commitment to some of our most vulnerable people and to ensuring investment continues in East Cleveland. We’re investing up to £250,000 into this project, despite Government cuts to both the council and in the amount of money the Government will pay towards rent for people in supported housing which includes the elderly and those with disabilities.”
