Char­ity mov­ing

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY LIFE -

STAFF AND vol­un­teers from Jewish Care’s Gold­ers Green head of­fice, Stu­art Young House, will de­camp tem­po­rar­ily to Colin­dale early next month to en­able work to start on a £40 mil­lion multi-pur­pose care cam­pus.

This in­cor­po­rates a 54-bed care home, 45 “ex­tra care” sup­ported liv­ing apart­ments, a day cen­tre and the char­ity’s of­fices. Build­ing work is ex­pected to take two-and-a-half years.

The re­lo­ca­tion to Merit House, in Edg­ware Road, will be stag­gered as it in­volves over 100 peo­ple, in­clud­ing helpline staff, the so­cial work and home care teams and the fi­nance and fundrais­ing de­part­ments. Phone num­bers will re­main un­changed.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Si­mon Mor­ris looked for­ward to “a new era. I feel very proud that we are em­bark­ing on such an am­bi­tious project that will ben­e­fit our com­mu­nity in so many ways.”
