One of the earlier Belong Villages, Wigan Village is featured in Architecture for an Ageing Population published by IAHSA in 2013.
Belong Warrington is built on a transformed brewery site and has already attracted attention across the UK and abroad for the integration of design and care to create a holistic person-centred approach. Belong has developed their model in close partnership with Pozzoni Architects.
Like all Belong Villages, Belong Warrington provides a combination of high-dependency care, independent living apartments and community facilities that are open to the general public, creating a true community ‘hub’.
Belong offers four key services in one place: households, apartments, a village centre and Belong At Home. Together, these services provide a vibrant hub at the heart of the community, and a continuum of services that enable a ‘home for life’ for people that begin accessing Belong support.
As the fifth village, Warrington has benefited from a process of continuous improvement, development and research with the four prior villages.
