Care home expansion brings jobs to Weston

A home which provides care for people with learning disabilities, autism and complex behaviours is expanding with help from NatWest.

Longton Court in Weston-super-Mare already offered accommodation to four individuals, and now owner Community Therapeutic Services (CTS) has bought the adjacent property and converted it into a further three self-contained flats.

The company was set up in 2006 by husband and wife Dr David Bladon-Wing and Dr Emily Bladon-Wing, both consultant clinical psychologists, and now operates three homes in north Somerset, one in Somerset and a supported living service that provides care in individuals’ homes throughout the South West region.

The expansion of Longton Court will create at least 14 new jobs and current manager Claire Chapman will now oversee the whole of the extended facility.
