Appleton Court Extra Care Housing Scheme

New Extra Care Housing Scheme Opening Soon in Hessle

East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s latest affordable housing development, ‘Appleton Court’, is in its final stages of development and is due to welcome tenants from June 2022. Based in Hessle and designed to support adults aged 18+ with varying levels of care needs, it is a new independent living facility that provides affordable rented housing with 24-hour onsite care and support (known as Extra Care Housing).

Appleton Court provides 44 apartments (36 one bedroom and 8 two bedroom) including some short stay apartments.  All the apartments have been designed and constructed to be accessible or easily adaptable for a wide range of physical disabilities.

The layout is open plan, kitchens have a rise and fall worktop and bathrooms have level access showers with a drop-down seat.  There is a communal lounge for socialising and planned activities for tenants to join if they wish.

As well as the onsite care team supporting people to maximise their independence, Appleton Court is fitted with the latest ‘smart technology’ to help keep tenants safe and secure. In addition to the communal gardens, all the apartments have access to private outside space via either a terrace or balcony.

The council is now welcoming applications from those who would like to live or work in Appleton Court.

People wishing to be considered for housing in the scheme must have a housing need and be in receipt of social care. Applicants must also have a local connection to the East Riding of Yorkshire. An allocations panel will consider all applications against the eligibility criteria. More information on this can be obtained by emailing:  appletoncourt@eastriding.gov.uk

A campaign to recruit the in-house care team is also underway. As a new facility there are several career and training development opportunities available at all levels, and applications are welcome from those looking to begin a career in care through to experienced senior care providers. Support to tenants will focus on outcome-based care plans, promoting access to community activities, technology enabled care (TEC) and re-ablement support.

If you are interested in finding out more about working at Appleton Court please see the dedicated recruitment page at https://www.eastridingcouncil.jobs/jobs-and-careers/featured-jobs/appleton-court/. A recruitment event will be held at Haltemprice Leisure on Wednesday 2 March 2022 and details of how to book onto the event can be found on the above webpage.

Councillor Claire Holmes, portfolio holder for planning, infrastructure and housing at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “The Appleton Court development has been a long term target for the council for many years so to see the development reach its final stages is very exciting. I would very much encourage tenants in the East Riding to attend the recruitment event on the 2 March at Haltemprice Leisure should they have interest in working at Appleton Court in the future.

“The council has also now begun the process of working through applications to live at Appleton Court and I very much look forward to seeing the apartments fully occupied in the coming months.”

Councillor Jonathan Owen, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, added: “The Appleton Court development is a very exciting project for the council to be involved with. There are several benefits to the development and it will go on to provide that extra care required whilst also providing affordable housing.

“This development will also provide lots of job opportunities for residents in the East Riding and I would encourage anyone interested in being part of the Appleton Court development in the future to attend the recruitment event in March.”

Springboard programme

Springboard Logo

The ‘Springboard Summer Tour’ starts on 26 June 2022 at the Memorial Day for Ivan Usher at Beverley East Riding Leisure.

The ‘Summer Tour’ is engaging with 16–24-year-olds across the East Riding and speaking to them about helping with their next steps to education, further training or employment.

The programme is fully funded and residents not in education or employment and living in the East Riding can access the help and advice from personal advisers located across the East Riding including Beverley, Bridlington, Goole, Hessle and Withernsea.

The tour will visit local venues and events over June and July including some of the East Riding Leisure Centres and larger events such as the Hornsea Carnival and Withstock Music Festival in Withernsea.

This is an opportunity for residents to come and have a chat about their future and learn about what the council can do to help with those essential next steps and answer any questions on the Springboard Programme.

The Springboard programme includes 1:1 and group sessions covering a range of topics including:

Mental toughness and well-being,
Communication skills,
Managing money,
Building self-esteem,
Building self-confidence,
How to engage with employers,
Interview skills,
CV help and guidance.
The programme can be tailored to suit needs and we can also signpost to other partners and services if required.

The Springboard team have had some great success stories so far after starting the project in January 2022. Mason from Withernsea has completed Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) training with an advisor to increase his chances of securing work in the construction sector and has just gained employment with a local building company.

In Bridlington, advisor Michaela has helped Hannah with applying for jobs and preparing for interviews. Hannah attended her job interview for a teaching assistant position and secured the job with a successful interview. The job will be based in Bridlington where Hannah lives.

The Springboard Programme really can make a difference by helping young people in securing a future or helping with those next steps to gain the employment or training. Come and stop by at one of our Summer Tour dates in your area to sign up or find out more.

Councillor Jane Evison, portfolio holder for economic investment, growth and tourism at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, commented: “This is a fantastic opportunity for young people in a number of areas across the East Riding to attend one of these summer roadshow events and learn how the Springboard Programme can help them take those next steps – whether it be in education, training or employment.

“Mason and Hannah’s stories should act as great encouragement for young people who may be needing that extra bit of support right now to come forward and speak to us. Mason and Hannah both took a similar route and now have gained employment in roles they have a great interest in. There are plenty of dates for people to get involved with and I look forward to hearing all about the next big success story of the Springboard Programme.”
