New MP for Easington at official opening of Huntercombe House Peterlee
Posted May 25th 2010
Huntercombe House Peterlee, a specialist residential learning disability centre for young adults, was delighted when Easington's newly elected MP, Grahame Morris came along to officially open the centre.
Having recently moved from its previous home Dene Hall in Easington, to purpose designed facilities at Huntercombe House Peterlee, specialist care is provided for adults between 18 and 65 years of age with special needs such as learning disabilities, challenging behaviour, autistic spectrum disorder, a diagnosed mental illness and also dual diagnosis of any of these conditions.
The focus of the unit is towards rehabilitation that will provide clients with the encouragement they need to ultimately return to a less supported environment and where possible their own tenancy.
The event, held on Saturday 22nd May was a huge success, with entertainments and events for residents, families, staff and locals in the form of live music, 5 a side football competition, fancy dress competition, a bouncy castle and much more.
Dawn Curry, Manager of Huntercombe House Peterlee said "We are delighted to have moved to this fantastic facility which will greatly enhance the quality of care we are able to provide to our residents, and were honoured that Grahame Morris was able to give his time to come along and support us on the day"
