New, self-contained flats for the homeless have been developed at Scunthorpe.
The accommodation for homeless people from around the area will be a new and long-term source of shelter, support and opportunity, it is hoped. The ‘place of change’ opens next month.
Scotter House, built on the site of a former care home in Dorchester Road, is modelled on the government’s Homelessness Change Programme. It will provide self-contained flats – each with its own kitchen and bathroom, for up to 20 people at a time.
