Building Independent Living Donate Fundraise This project was scheduled to start in July 2020 but has been delayed by COVID-19. Later this year the 700 Club will take possession of 32, one bed flats, for the use of individuals who have the potential to live independently but who lack the skills and confidence to do so. Those who occupy the accommodation will be fully supported for up to a year The flats will be handed over from the contractor unfurnished, and before anyone can take advantage of the service, the flats require furnishing and equipping. Each flat has a bedroom, lounge, kitchen, bathroom, and its own front door. The cost of furnishing each room is £4000 in total, or £3200 plus the Gift Aid. All furnishing and equipment will be purchased new. Experience has taught us that providing new furnishings and equipment not only engenders respect for the accommodation, but also builds the individual's sense of worth. We are asking our local community to help with the costs of furnishing and equipping. Individuals or businesses who sponsor a whole room will have their name included on a display within the building if they wish to.
