Yesterday Hedley House, a new supported accommodation project for young people at risk of homelessness in County Durham, celebrated its official opening (Wednesday 9 October).
The project, based in Park Road, South Moor Stanley, is provided by a partnership of Changing Lives, Durham County Council Housing Solutions and Children and Young People’s Services.
It provides safe and secure accommodation for vulnerable young people, facing difficult life circumstances and that are at risk of becoming homeless.
The project was officially opened by Councillor Carole Hampson, Town Mayor of Stanley.
In celebration of the launch Changing Lives hosted an afternoon tea, which was prepared by the young residents. The event was well attended, with our CEO Stephen Bell welcoming guests from Durham Police, Durham Housing solutions and Durham County Council.
