Arc expands its property portfolio
It’s all going on here at Arc! We’re pleased to announce that we have recently expanded our property portfolio by working alongside Sedgemoor District Council to purchase two houses of multiple occupation (HMOs) in Bridgwater.
The move comes as part of Arc’s partnership with the local authority and the council’s rough sleeper initiative which works to put an end to rough sleeping. This expansion reflects the growing demand for homelessness services across the district.
The two 6-bedroom properties, one containing en-suite bathrooms for each bedroom, will help to house and support those who become homeless, providing accommodation for a total of 12 people. In addition to this, a self-contained 2-bedroom flat at the rear of one of the properties will provide further accommodation for up to four people.
Arc will be making adaptations to one of the properties to include wheelchair access and make the house fully accessible. Otherwise, the houses are in good condition and will hopefully be ready for clients to move in as early as October. We will shortly be recruiting to cover the support for these properties.
There may be more innovative projects in the future as our partnership with Sedgemoor District Council continues, so keep your eyes peeled on our website and social media channels for updates!
