Andy Burnham officially launches Adactus’s landmark scheme in Leigh
Adactus Housing and Ark Design and Architecture have worked closely with Wigan Borough Council and Richmond Fellowship, a specialist provider of mental health services, to provide spacious, high quality apartments for 14 people living with the effects of mental ill health. Richmond Fellowship is one of the biggest voluntary sector providers of mental health care in England, supporting over 7,500 people towards the best possible quality of life for each individual.
Rueben’s Court was developed on the site of the former famous Leigh nightclub Ruebens. The new building which is owned by Adactus draws on local historical cues and expresses its residential nature in the arrangement of full height windows as seen on Victorian terraces in Leigh.
Hilary Roberts, Group Director of Development – Adactus Housing Group says, “We are delighted that our Secretary of State, MP Andy Burnham joined us to launch this landmark scheme in Leigh and support Adactus and our partners celebrate the occasion alongside the residents whose lives are being improved.”
