A new perspective on Burnholme Care Home

New care community for Bridport takes a step forward

Where you live can really affect your health and wellbeing, but there’s a financial cost too. In England alone, it’s estimated that poor quality housing costs the NHS £1.4 billion a year.

That’s why Dorset Council is thinking differently about how to use land we own, under a programme called Building Better Lives.

In the next phase of an exciting project in Bridport, the council is working with experienced developers and social housing providers, to plan, finance and build a new care community. It will include a new care home with nursing and dementia facilities, supported living accommodation, and accommodation for key health and social care staff.
