Refurbishment underway to improve facilities for children and young people with disabilities in Slough

A 30-week refurbishment programme aimed at improving facilities for children and young people with disabilities in Slough has commenced.

The facility, called ‘Breakaway’, is part of the Slough Children’s Services Trust and is a short break service for children/young people who have a learning disability, physical disability and/or sensory impairment. The facility also supports families and helps them to remain as a family unit.

The £760,000 project, includes the complete internal refurbishment together with replacement of all external windows and doors and three small extensions to the Breakaway building. A fully fitted out sensory room will also be provided as part of the works, assisted by our specialist supply chain.

Samuel Tumba, Unit Manager at Breakaway, said: “We are really looking forward to getting this refurbishment completed. We want to provide the best service possible to the children, young people and families we support and this first-class centre will help achieve that”.

Russell Payne, Operations Manager, United Living Property Services, said: “We are proud to be working on this project, providing the very best environment for those that need support”.

Children and staff have been moved to alternative accommodation for the duration of the works. The project is scheduled to be completed by September 2021.
