We are delighted to have formed a new partnership with the Autistic Society Greater Manchester Area (ASGMA) aimed at enhancing our developments of new build properties for people living with autism.
We develop specialist supported living apartments for people with a range of complex disabilities including autism. So far we have delivered more than 600 apartments across the country for disabled adults and we are on target to deliver 400 more by the end of 2019.
ASGMA is a charity which provides parents and carers with support and information for people with autistic spectrum conditions, including Asperger Syndrome and other conditions.
We'd like to thank our delivery partners including Morgan Sindall Investments Limited (MSIL), Altrincham-based Calderpeel, Clancy Consulting, Zerum and Stone hosted a variety of workshops, meetings and focus groups with members of the charity.
Jonathan Wrigley, managing director of HBV, said:
"We are pleased to be the first developers in the specialist supported living market to complete this programme and we have learned a great deal that we will now include in our business. The insights we gleaned from members of ASGMA, who are all diagnosed with autism, has been insightful and will enable us to further enhance our bespoke properties making them more in tune with what this market demands."
Wes Auden, chair of the board of trustees at ASGMA, said:
"We are pleased to encourage businesses like HBV and its partners to learn more about autism so that they are able to better engage with people in our community and their families who are affected by it. It is pleasing that we have played a role in guiding the way new specialist supported living developments are built and we are looking forward to seeing our guidance implemented."
