Where are we with our plans?
During 2014 YoungDementia UK Homes attracted the remainder of the £2.65 million needed to create its planned supported living facility. This included support from Charity Bank, the Homes and Communities Agency, the Tudor Trust, Oxfordshire County Council and West Oxfordshire District Council.
We joined the Rushy Bank Partnership early in 2015 to create a facility which would form part of a sustainable housing development adjacent to the railway station in Charlbury, West Oxfordshire. The Partnership submitted its original plans in February 2015. Our application was considered for information only at the Uplands Planning Sub-Committee in June and we agreed to withdraw the application so we could make changes that would address the concerns raised during the public consultation. We resubmitted our plans in August 2015. To see the plans on the West Oxfordshire District Council planning portal click here. You can also view YoungDementia UK Homes’ designs on our website here.

Our plans have been supported by the Prime Minister, David Cameron, who is MP for Witney in West Oxfordshire. Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire, Tim Stevenson is also keen to see our plans come to fruition.
Our next public consultation meeting will take place on the 12 September between 10am and 12 noon at the Morris Room, The Corner House, Charlbury.
Further consultation with people with young onset dementia (about what they would like in the home and how they would like the services delivered) and health and social care professionals is planned. If you wish to be involved in this process please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
