The Bath Wellbeing House, a retreat provided by Curo and commissioned by Virgin Care for local people experiencing mental health distress, has been shortlisted for the UK Housing Awards.
The service, which offers people a place to stay where they can receive support to stabilise themselves and prevent a crisis, is a finalist in the 'Outstanding approach to meeting specialist housing needs' category of the prestigious Inside Housing awards scheme.
"We're really proud of of the Welling House and excited to be shortlisted for these awards," said Director of Health, Care and Support, Harriet Bosnell. "We know we have something very special with the Wellbeing House because we continually hear amazing feedback from the many people who've already benefited from this free service. We think this service is a brilliant example of how partnerships between housing associations like Curo and health and support organisations like Virgin Care can make a real difference to people's health and wellbeing. We'd love to see more Wellbeing Houses, so I hope this recognition will help to spread the word."
