A New Supported Living Centre in Eastbourne
The JPK Project Centre is located in the heart of Old Town, Eastbourne, on the site of the former Edgmond Church. It is an ideal location, just a mile from the town centre and on a bus route in an established residential area with nearby shops, a park and further amenities.
Following several years of fundraising and planning, the JPK Project bought the site and secured consent in 2013 to develop a supported living centre serving the Eastbourne and East Sussex area.
On completion, it will provide accommodation for 24 individuals with learning disabilities via 16 en-suite studio apartments and 8 flatlets, plus communal rooms, including a kitchen, lounge area and activity room. We look forward to creating a friendly, encouraging and supportive environment, where new skills, confidence and independence can flourish.
The JPK Palm Court Tea Room
Alongside our longer term plans to create a supported living centre we are currently completing work to open a new tea room named the JPK Palm Court Tea Room, along with a bakery and training centre. Scheduled to open in 2018, the tea room will enable us to offer work experience and training placements. We also anticipate creating a number of volunteering opportunities.
