Residents have moved into 11 brand new independent living homes at 5 Peel Road.

These homes are all 1-bedroom, self-contained residential flats developed as part of Brent’s New Accommodation for Independent Living (NAIL) programme.

As well as being fully adapted the new homes benefit from communal facilities including a lounge and dining area and a landscaped front and back garden. Residents have access to 24-hour care including a remote warden call system which allows residents to contact care staff anywhere in the building.

These homes are part of the council’s programme to build 1,000 new council homes for Brent residents by 2024. The council is directly funding the £300 million programme to build these new homes along with £95 million grant from the Mayor of London.

Brent Council will be working with a care provider, Westminster Home Care, who will look after the day-to-day running of the scheme.

Tyson Martin, Operations Support Manager at Westminster Home Care, commented: “We are proud to assist Brent Council’s innovative NAIL project by providing the best care possible in accommodation specifically designed to cater for residents with specific individual needs. Enhancing the communities in which we work is one of our core company values, and this project will greatly boost the lives of residents who most need it.”

Councillor Eleanor Southwood, Cabinet Member for Housing and Welfare Reform said: “It’s absolutely fantastic to see this scheme of 11 homes, up and running, and people moving in. This partnership with Westminster Home Care means residents can access support to live independently. We’re well on the way to building a minimum of 1000 council homes which are designed with the full diversity of residents’ needs in mind.”

Cllr Harbi Farah, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, added: “We are very happy to officially open this scheme of 11 homes for independent living. The council is committed to building good quality, affordable and adapted homes for residents who need them, in order to remain independent. We are continuing to build during this challenging time, in order to provide much-needed homes for local people, and to make sure that our most vulnerable residents can continue to be an integral part of our vibrant and diverse communities.”
