At the beginning of 2023, we took the decision to purchase a holiday lodge in Carnforth.
The idea came from our Persona Your Voice Committee and is designed to provide a luxury holiday opportunity for people we support, at an affordable price.
The lodge has been built to a design that makes it accessible for people with specific mobility needs. The location and design of the lodge have been directed by a willing group of volunteers from the Persona Your Voice Committee. We recently discussed the design of the lodge at Your Voice and as a result we’ve made a few changes to the layout.
The key changes we have made are:
- ensuring both bathrooms are wet rooms
- ensuring one bedroom has a profiling bed
- replacing the two single beds in one of the rooms with a double bed
- adding a sofa bed in the living area
- adding a large utility cupboard in the hallway that can house mobility equipment and if necessary, provide a parking space and charging point for electric mobility equipment
The structural build of the lodge has been completed and will soon be installed on site. Once installed, we will be working with members of Your Voice to finalise the interior design and user features before we go live for bookings for 2024.
We can’t wait to see its journey as it comes to life!
