Modular homes for homeless ‘ready in time for Christmas’
Six modular homes will be made available for homeless people at the Christ the Redeemer church in Barnwell by Christmas.
The homes will be introduced as part of a new ‘Home First’ project involving Allia Future Business Centre, Jimmy’s night shelter, Holy Cross parish and New Meaning, a not-for-profit which has developed the structures.
Subject to planning permission on October 2, the six homes will be made available to homeless or formerly homeless people. It is expected that the structures will be craned onto the site next to the Newmarket Road, assembled and put to use there for at least two years.
