cordage view

Cordage View, a supported living service which opened in February this year in Grimsby, Lincolnshire, has won the Best Partnership award at the national Inside Housing Development Awards.

The purpose-built service can support up to 15 adults living in each of its self-contained one-bedroom apartments.

Cordage View is the result of a partnership involving:

  • North East Lincolnshire Council
  • EQUANS, the facilities management firm
  • J C Pomfret Construction Ltd, the builder
  • Golden Lane Housing, the landlord
  • Living Ambitions, part of Lifeways Group, the UK’s largest team of professionals supporting adults in the community

Living Ambitions’ role in the partnership is to provide tailored, specialist support for the individuals who live at Cordage View.

For its construction, the service received a £650,000 Department of Health grant to install technology to support independent living.

The service is called Cordage View to pay homage to the Lincolnshire coastal town’s former twine and net-making mill nearby.

What are the Inside Housing Development Awards?

Every year, in a ceremony held in London, the Inside Housing Development Awards celebrate councils, housing providers, developers and architects for their work in building exemplary homes and communities.

Cordage View was shortlisted earlier this year, and saw off competition from eight other entries from across the UK.

‘Best of both worlds’

Caela O'Hara, Area Operations Manager for Living Ambitions, said: “Despite the disruption caused by the pandemic, it’s been a pleasure to support individuals to start the next stage of their lives at Cordage View.”

“Cordage View offers the best of both worlds: privacy and independence, along with support when needed,” Caela added.

“The individuals we support at Cordage View are proud of their new homes and are looking forward to their future.”

“It’s also been great to work with the North East Lincolnshire Council and Golden Lane Housing, together with other partners, to help make Cordage View a reality.”
