A FANTASTIC new facility for adults with learning disabilities has been opened by Mark Menzies MP.

Nateby House, a joint project between New Fylde Housing and The Ormerod Trust, will house five people with varying disabilities on the Heyhouses Estate.

The scheme will allow them to live in independently but with support in a sparkling new community facility.

Nateby House is staffed 24 hours a day and is part of the pioneering and eco-friendly re-developed Heyhouses estate which is home to more than 100 Fylde residents.

Sue Sharples, Chief Executive of the Ormerod Trust: “Nateby House is a comfortable, safe and attractive home environment for people with a learning disability to live there independently. It is a great step forward that people with learning disabilities are able to live supported but independent lives. It will make a huge difference to them and their families. I hope the new residents will be warmly welcomed into the local community.”

Eric Tamanis, Managing Director of New Fylde Housing, said: “We are delighted to be working once again with the Ormerod Trust, providing much needed accommodation which enables people with support needs to live in the wider community.”

Mark added: “As patron of the Ormerod Trust I was absolutely delighted to be asked to officially open Nateby House.

“This fantastic project is a credit to both New Fylde Housing and Ormerod and will provide a fantastic home for some very deserving young people on a tremendous new estate.

“Ormerod are always on the lookout for help and I would encourage anyone to visit them and see firsthand the tremendous work they do for our community.

“I’m sure it will inspire people to want to get involved.”
