On Friday 22 June, Lucy Frazer, MP for South East Cambridgeshire, officially opened the new Edmund Trust supported living properties based in Milton. The four new buildings have been purpose built to accommodate 18 people with learning disabilities. Properties such as this are so in demand by our communities that they’ve already been snapped up.
The Edmund Trust offer a range of residential, supported living, domiciliary support and respite services for people with learning disabilities. People in these new supported living properties will have their own tenancies which will really empower them and offer unique home security. It also offers people the opportunity to be part of the thriving Milton community and live independently in a purpose built home with any support available that they may need.
John Ellis, Chief Executive of The Edmund Trust said: “We’re delighted that Lucy Frazer came along to support us. Lucy has been supportive of us for a number of years and we’re very thankful. The new properties keeps us as a charity moving and enables us to support more people with the kind of accommodation that they really need.”
The Edmund Trust now owns seven properties, supports 200 people in and around Cambridge and has around 200 staff.
