Social Housing 190 Sheffield Road

This project is the result of a number of organisations working together to provide good quality single bed accommodation for people that are homeless and recovering from mental health issues.

Barnsley Council, MIND, Moorlands College and BCB's construction team have over a twelve month period totally refurbished an old Victorian town villa, transforming the interior to provide six single bedsits and two single bed flats.

Barnsley Council: Provided the loan to purchase the property

Moorlands College: Recruited and supported the apprentices in developing their work skills and knowledge along side achieving the NVQ level two qualifications

MIND: Refer tenants and provide the support that they need to establish an independent lifestyle

BCB: Coordinated the project and is the managing agent

This project would not have been possible without the support from the government's empty homes funding to help cover the refurbishment costs.

If you are interested in a tenancy please contact Sue at BCB on 01226 786780
