The Sussex group started their application with JMS in 2019. They are a group of 6 young people who had been friends for many years. They decided they wanted to live together in the area that they had grown up in.
Through JMS Trust grant funding the group were able to transform the house, making a range of adaptations and improvement to make sure the house is fit for purpose and suits everyone who lives there. Particularly the funding was used to update internal and external staircases, update plumbing and bathrooms and install new safety measures such as a front gate to create a break between the house and a busy road and a video entrance system.
Their project has recently completed with the final young person moving in in January 2020.
