HRH The Duchess of Gloucester visited disability charity Enham Trust today (Wednesday 6th May) to officially open the Charity’s brand new, on-site housing development Weston Court.
Completed earlier this year, Weston Court consists of eight wheelchair accessible one bedroom bungalows designed in consultation with the charity’s disabled clients; the opening ceremony marking the conclusion of a long journey to independent living for the new residents.
Enham Trust’s Chief Executive Peta Wilkinson commented: “We are honoured to welcome our Patron, HRH The Duchess of Gloucester, back to our Home Estate during this very special time. This exciting development, Weston Court, will enable more of our clients living with a disability to live as independently as possible.”
The visit enabled The Duchess to meet some of Enham Trust’s clients and staff and hear about the Charity’s future plans.
Enham Trust, based near Andover, Hampshire, of which The Duchess is Patron, supports over 7,500 disabled and disadvantaged people across the country to live the lives they choose; gaining greater independence in every aspect of their lives – providing accessible and affordable housing standing at the forefront of their work.
