Proposal Details: We are interested in taking over the premises at Fair Lea as a multi-use service for people with learning disabilities. We believe it could offer an excellent resource for respite care, shared care, transition training day services and assessment. We anticipate fee income, fundraising would cover our costs. We already employ 100 staff in the area and have a management infrastructure able to take on this initiative. Such a development could deliver significant economies of scale that would be of long term benefit to DCC as a purchaser of our other activities.
