Suffolk Development Project

Suffolk County Council selected Care UK to help fulfil its vision for older people’s care in the county. As part of this process Care UK invested £60 million in ten new care homes and ten day clubs, bringing much needed additional nursing and specialist dementia care to the Suffolk community.

This three year plan finalised in 2016, with the opening of Glastonbury Court, and replaced Suffolk County Council’s existing homes and wellbeing centres which date mainly from the 1960s and 1970s.
