On 14 September, staff and Trustees from Father Hudson’s Care braved the rain to join the official opening ceremony of St Vincent’s House – a development of ten supported living apartments for people with learning disabilities.

The apartments were officially opened by Cllr Sue Wallace, the Deputy Mayor of Coleshill, Fr Kevin Kavanagh, Coleshill’s Parish Priest, Kevin Caffrey, chair of the board of Trustees and Noel Joiner, who is set to be one of the first tenants. Also present on the day were several local councillors and representatives from Bellway Homes.

Father Hudson’s Chief Executive Andy Quinn, Kevin Caffrey, Cllr Wallace and Fr Kavanagh delivered speeches. Cllr Wallace described how proud she is of Father Hudson’s connection to Coleshill and extended a warm welcome to those who will soon call St Vincent’s House home. Andy Quinn and Kevin Caffrey expressed how pleased they are to have been part of this new development for the organisation, which continues the long tradition of care in a changing social care setting. Fr Kavanagh offered a welcome and blessed the apartments.

Cllr Wallace and Noel Joinor then cut the ribbon. Noel also unveiled a commemorative plaque and, to much applause, declared the apartments officially open.

A number of the apartments are now spoken for and the new tenants are looking forward to moving in. Anyone interested in the remaining apartments can contact Father Hudson’s Care on 01675 434000. Applications are welcomed from people within North Warwickshire and further afield, and from both the Catholic and wider communities.

Support packages from Father Hudson’s Care will be available if required, following a discussion of needs, and will need to be funded by the local authority, by the individual themselves or through direct payments.
