ECE are working alongside the Royal Borough of Kingston to create a new respite facility for ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) children and their families within the grounds of the Moor Lane Centre, in Chessington.
The proposed development takes a design led approach and provides bedrooms and living quarters for 8 children and 1 member of staff, with accessible suites and showers. The proposed building is single storey, set in an L-shaped arrangement around a secure courtyard garden. The design respects and responds to the surrounding context and the associated constraints.
The new Respite facility will also enhance Achieving for Children’s (AFC) aim to:
Develop the Moor Lane Centre into an ‘enhanced integrated multi-agency centre of excellence’ for families and children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
Achieving for Children is the ‘Community Interest Company’ responsible for delivering children’s services for both Richmond and Kingston.Share this
