Renovation work has begun at Bradley Community Resource Centre.

The remodelling and redecoration of the facility will ensure the reablement service can continue supporting people to regain their mobility and independence before returning home from a hospital stay.

Some £75,000 is being invested to improve access within the Lord Street facility, as well as replacing flooring, installing new hygiene facilities and redecorating the building.

Councillor Linda Leach, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Adult Services, said: "Bradley Community Resource Centre plays a really important role in helping people make a successful transition from hospital to home, helping them regain skills and independence they may have lost while they were in hospital.

"The staff there have worked tirelessly over the last 12 months to ensure the centre has remained operational throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, and their energy and commitment towards the elderly and vulnerable people who needed their help has been absolutely amazing.

"I am pleased that we are now able to proceed with this renovation work which will improve the experience for everyone who uses the building, whether they are staff or service users."

The centre will continue to provide reablement services while the improvement work is carried out.
