Belong Wigan is a £9 million, purpose-built village that provides accommodation and support for the elderly while allowing them to live independently as part of the wider community. The village, one of ten being built across the North West by the Charity CLS Care Services, will contain 54 one-bedroom flats, 24 two-bedroom flats and 66 registered care beds designed in “family groups” to provide specialist residential, dementia or nursing care.
Belong, is an award-winning Extra Care village consisting of two three-storey blocks. Belong was awarded numerous industry awards including the Extra Care Provider category at the prestigious Laing Buisson Independent Healthcare Awards.
The Belong, Wigan, development was built to create a community, and will have a number of facilities and services contained within, effectively creating a self-contained village.
