Construction has started on an independent living facility which could give 29 disabled people the chance to live on their own for the first time.
The three-storey building on Stanley Street in Grimsby is on the site of the former Excelsior Club. It is expected to be completed in 15 months and should be opened in late 2019.
The project by disability-support organisation Foresight will give opportunities to vulnerable people with physical, emotional or learning difficulties.
Paul Silvester, chief officer of Foresight, said: "This is an extremely proud moment after two years of hard work. Once completed, this will be an exceptional facility, which will improve the lifestyles of local disabled people."
Foresight would like to say a special thank you to Thompson & Richardson Insurance Brokers, for their assistance in making the project possible.
