Millions of pounds have been spent on refurbishing apartments for the blind and disabled.

Jewish Blind and Disabled has opened applications for people wishing to live in its brand new £6.7million development of mobility apartments in Bushey Heath.

Building work is now almost complete on the Dyna and Fala Weinstock Wing, which is adjacent to Jewish Blind & Disabled's current Cecil Rosen Court building which is set to open in spring 2019.

Jewish Blind and Disabled chief executive Hazel Kaye said: “We are so very aware of how living in unsuitable accommodation can make life very difficult life for people who have had to face a diagnosis of disability or vision impairment.

“As the only charity in the Jewish community dedicated to enabling people in this position to live independently, we are looking forward to this opportunity to welcome many more new tenants in 2019.”

The charity welcomes applications from Jewish adults, aged 18 and upwards, with physical disabilities or impaired vision.

The Dyna and Fala Weinstock Wing will provide 15 one-bedroom apartments, four two-bedroom apartments, a roof terrace and state of the art communal areas.

The charity currently has 360 tenants, in seven buildings across London and Hertfordshire, encompassing an array of different disabilities including multiple sclerosis, Huntingdon’s Chorea, cerebral palsy, rheumatoid arthritis as well as sight related disabilities and those disabilities that come with age.

More information, as well as the relevant forms, can be received by emailing or calling 020 8371 6611 and selecting option 2.

The opening of the Dyna and Fala Weinstock Wing is just one of the innovations planned for Jewish Blind & Disabled’s 50th anniversary year of 2019.
