Affinity Supporting People – part of National Care Group – has opened a service in Liverpool for vulnerable adults with learning difficulties.

The property, which will support seven people, has been renovated across three floors with communal areas. Two of the living units have kitchenettes to assist with additional independence.

The service has been opened with the backing of private equity firm Henley and is supported by First Priority Housing Association and the Liverpool City Council commissioning team.

‘Many adults with learning disabilities, autism and mental health problems are struggling to access services that meet their needs, remaining on long waiting lists with limited access to housing options,’ said Mike Ranson, National Care Group commercial director.

‘Therefore, we’re proud to be able to provide an answer to this crisis and care for individuals with a range of needs in a tailored environment that will help them to unlock their full potential.’

As well as investing in development of services, the National Care Group has been expanding through acquisition.
