A new £750,000 care home is being built in Birmingham.
The Eastern Birmingham Primary Care Trust is providing £230,000 of the funding needed for the home, which will accommodate six people with learning disabilities coupled with physical and sensory impairment.
The home, in Castle Vale, will give tenants better access to the local community and mainstream health services.
Sam Davies, commissioning manager from Eastern Birmingham PCT, said: "The PCT is delighted with the design and location of the new building, and is confident the home will meet the needs of the residents now and into the future."
The car home will be built for the PCT, in partnership with Family Housing Association Birmingham Ltd, by Chase Norton Constructions at Sopwith Croft.
Construction is due to start this month, the building is due to be completed by the end of the year, and the first residents are scheduled to move in next March.
Care for residents at the home will be provided by Elizabeth Fitzroy Care.
Tim Sewell, chief executive of Family Housing Association, said: "With a growing need for community care and support, we are actively increasing our involvement in the provision of accommodation and supporting service across the Midlands.
"Our impressive portfolio of supported housing schemes has been developed in partnership with other organisations in the statutory, care and voluntary sectors."
He added: "As one of the major providers of social housing in Birmingham, we already have the necessary resources to provide supportive housing for people with learning difficulties."
