These adaptations to our transition home significantly increase our ability to help those most vulnerable and in the greatest need.
Last month we completed some major adaptation works to the Brighter Path transition home in Colombo to make it suitable for wheelchair users. The most important part of our project was the creation of a ground floor washroom and the widening of doorways to give wheelchair users full access. As a result of this work we have now been able to welcome a new care leaver resident who is a full-time wheelchair user. This is fantastic news. The transition to independent living is challenging enough for most care leavers but those with additional needs can face a particularly bleak future in adulthood. At Brighter Path we are committed to helping all those care leavers in need regardless of disability. A number of our care leavers have physical and mental health issues but these adaptations to the Colombo transition home significantly increase our ability to help those most vulnerable and in the greatest need.
