New building will provide a more modern and comfortable experience for those getting support with West Sussex Mind.
The newly refurbished mental health support hub on Maltravers Drive was reopened by Littlehampton Mayor Cllr Michelle Molloy at a reopening event on 12 May, accompanied with speeches and a celebratory cake.
The Maltravers site was a former care home with rather outdated decor and has now been transformed into a modern facility, following building works that began in November 2021. The hub was renovated and refurbished to improve accessibility and the experience of people getting support with West Sussex Mind - and to meet increasing demand for mental health support.
The new site has four separate rooms for one-to-one mental health support sessions, a multi-functional main space, new kitchen, conservatory and three brand-new toilets, including a disabled toilet. It also has new furnishings, made possible through a grant from the Morrisons Foundation. The main space can provide drop-in support for up to 30 people and leads out onto a new bright and airy conservatory, which lets in lots of natural light.
The new changes to the Littlehampton mental health support hub are sure to be welcomed by the local community, as they provide a more accessible and improved experience to users of the hub.
“This once dated and unusable space has been transformed into a welcoming, accessible and vibrant environment, allowing those being supported to feel valued and to have an improved sense of wellbeing," said Maxine Thomas, Adur, Littlehampton and Worthing Pathfinder Service Manager at West Sussex Mind.
