Regent Terrace, Leeds – for St Georges Crypt

Posted on Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

We continue our strong relationship with Strategic Team Group by securing the electrical and mechanical installation works at the new development at Regent Terrace.

St Georges Crypt are a charity in the City of Leeds, working with the homeless, the vulnerable and those suffering from addiction.

Regent House, is a home for alcohol dependent gentlemen. The 24/7 staff support the residents and allows for a tailored support plan to enable the residents to move to appropriate tenancies and become self-sufficient. Regent House works in close partnership with various agencies across Leeds to deliver the support required for this group of people.

The old home at Regent Terrace has been demolished and is to be rebuilt into 14 self-contained flats. This positive experience of self-reliance in their own flat, coupled with the onsite member of staff to support and help in any way will make it easier for the residents to cope with life in their own tenancy once they are ready to move on.
