Precious Homes set to open three new services
10 Feb 2020
Precious Homes is set to open three new Supported Living and Support Living Plus services in Netherton, near Dudley.
Located in the former Nethercest Residential Home, the previously empty buildings have been redeveloped to a very high specification, resulting in modern-flats and communal space for up to 25 people. The new supported-living and supported living plus services will provide bespoke, accessible accommodation for people with autism, learning disabilities and physical disabilities, with an on-site cafe that will be open to the community.
Outcome-focussed, person-centred support
Greg Lapham, CEO of Precious Homes, explains, “The new services – Osprey Mews, Goldcrest Court and Turaco View – have been developed in partnership with Golden Lane Housing, a leading social housing landlord for people with a learning disability, in response to demand for this type of bespoke care in the local area. We’ve worked hard to create bright and modern homes which are fully equipped to be accessible to all and can be tailored to meet the individual needs of the people we support. The new services and the team we have in place will provide support which is outcome-focussed and person-centred, encouraging individuals to become as independent as possible.”
The new services are based on the style of the company’s award-winning services at Swan Court, Falcon Mews and Robins View in Birmingham. This tiered service model offers pathways of support for people as they develop their independence, with an on-site cafe that is ideal for hosting events, encouraging independence and providing an all-important link with the local community.
Warm, homely environment and high-quality care
Inside, the services have been carefully designed to provide a safe yet homely environment for the people that will live and work there. Rounded corners on walls and sinks, worktops and hobs that raise and lower to meet the needs of the user give a clear indication that the buildings have been redeveloped to exacting specifications, with safety, accessibility and independence at their heart. The functional approach is balanced by interior design themes which take inspiration from the town’s farming and industrial history, from a farmhouse theme with wooden furniture and uplifting artwork in one building to an industrial theme in the other.
Greg concludes, “The new services demonstrate our focus on the delivery of high quality, personalised support and state of the art provision for the people we support. We’re extremely excited to be taking the next step on our journey, with more services due to open later in the year.”
With more than 25 years of experience, the company has 42 services up and down the country and has won a host of awards for the design of its services and the high-quality, person-centred care provided.

Those wishing to take a look around the new services are invited to join the Precious Homes team on the 5th March.
