Press release: Derelict house undergoes transformation to provide a home for vulnerable adults

A national property and housing firm that tackles the housing shortage and homelessness crisis have recently begun renovations on a new social housing property in Willesden Green, North West London.

National Housing Group (NHG) has recently commenced renovations on the property on Cobbold Road, Willesden Green, North West London which will house five vulnerable residents, who are in need of a safe home environment.

The supported housing property will offer five self contained units, each with a kitchenette and an en-suite bathroom. Residents will also have access to a larger, fully equipped kitchen and a garden area. 

National Housing Group is currently in the process of installing solar panels onto the flat roof as well as installing other sustainable solutions, ensuring the property is eco friendly and cost efficient for the residents. 

It is likely that a local housing organisation will be taking on the lease of the Willesden Green property to provide tailor-made support, care and accommodation services for adults in need.

Speaking of the building renovation, Stephen Wasserman, National Housing Group’s founder and CEO said: “I am immensely pleased to see renovation work beginning at Cobbold Road. It is a privilege to be able to offer high quality living spaces to vulnerable adults who might otherwise struggle to find suitable accommodation in the area.”

National Housing Group originally acquired the Willesden Green Property, which came with permitted development planning rights, in Summer 2021. 

Stephen said: “Once completed, the property will hugely benefit those who reside there, as well as the Willesden Green community. Everyone is really excited to be helping support these individuals who need a place they can call home.”

National Housing Group works with housing associations, councils and charities, such as Social Interest Group, nationwide to provide high-quality accommodation to vulnerable adults who are often neglected and can find it challenging to secure a property.
