New start for adults

13 July 2018

Long-standing Kisharon supporters Irving and Gillian Carter fixed mezuzot to two new supported living apartments at Leeside Crescent that were developed through their generosity.

New tenants will be moving soon to the new homes, each with a fully-equipped kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and underfloor heating.

Kisharon now has 29 places where individuals with learning disabilities can live independently, with a waiting list of 20.

Another donor making the Leeside Crescent development possible was Kisharon’s Chief Executive Bev Jacobson who contributed the proceeds of two marathons one in Jerusalem and the Antarctic Ice Marathon she completed in 2016.

The ceremony was also attended by Keir Lynch, Chief Executive Officer of ECL, one of the largest care providers in Essex who had a tour of Kisharon’s supported living facilities.

Chairman Philip Goldberg said Kisharon’s expansion of supported living was part of its long-term goal of ensuring that people with learning disabilities had opportunities to learn, work and live life independently.
