The plan, outlined at the recent Dulwich Community Council, is for Southwark to open an adult residential service at the Holmhurst in Half Moon Lane for about 10-12 adults (in 18-50 age range). The adults will have a range of mental health and learning disabilities and Southwark will be partnering Optima Care to provide a service of supported living at Holmhurst. All the adults are already known to Southwark and Optima Care but currently are living away from London because of the lack of facilities in Southwark itself. The opening of the new centre will enable these adults to come back to Southwark and live near their families. The intention is that they will be integrated into the community and will build a life as part of the Herne Hill community.
There will be three ‘community conversations’ on the proposal as follows:
- Wednesday 15 April 6:30-8:30pm
- Saturday 18 April 2:00-5:00pm
- Saturday 24 April 2:00-5:00pm
Location: Methodist Church Hall, 155 Half Moon Lane SE24 9HU
