Six firms signed up by North Yorkshire County Council to deliver care accommodation
Six contractors have won places on a £650m framework to deliver care accommodation in North Yorkshire.
Firms will cover the design, build, operation and management of care projects.
The framework winners are Galliford Try Partnerships North, Keepmoat Regeneration, Ashley House, Housing and Care 21, Places for People and Your Housing Group.
Councillor Clare Wood, executive member for health and adult Services at North Yorkshire County Council, said: “Extra care in North Yorkshire has won widespread acclaim for the way in which it allows people to live independent, happy and supported lives. We want to put it at the heart of our communities for the current and future generations.
“With this extra care housing framework in place, we are able to push forward with this ambition. By 2020, we will have seen the provision of well-designed and well-supported apartments and bungalows right across North Yorkshire, making it possible for people to have the care and support they need in places where they want to live.”
