The original Westminster House children’s home operated from two converted 1960’s houses, which were no longer able to meet the required standards for residential care. The new home is only the second care home purposely built for children within Milton Keynes, with the accommodation providing dedicated 24-hour care for its residents, who have a wide range of learning difficulties and physical disabilities.
The new accommodation was designed after consultation with the youngsters and their families, and features eight en-suite bedrooms, a sensory room, and a large lounge and kitchen with patio. The design has created a fully accessible and functional environment that improves the quality of life of those children living at the ‘Home’ and assist the staff in the delivery of the care the residents require.
Westminster House was awarded the ‘Best Social or Affordable New Housing Development’ in LABC Central Regional Award Winners 2014.
