Project details

We have created a new home for SAFAR, a Sheffield based charity providing support and rehabilitation for alcohol dependants. The accommodation consists of a core house and adjacent move-on apartments.

The core house can accommodate up to 16 occupants, each having their own fully furnished bedroom with en-suite, and shared use of all other facilities including a games room, gym and communal kitchen and dining area. Five single bedroom apartments on adjoining land provide move-on accommodation, a stepping stone towards independent living.
