BNR Hub is opening on Brandon Street in April 2023 and will offer a safe space for those with additional, complex and challenging needs. The idea is to create a space where the people they care for, as well as people in the care of other agencies and organizations, can enjoy things they wouldn’t usually get the chance to.

BNR Agency works with adults who have complex and challenging needs — prohibiting them from many activities. The new hub will offer activities such as art therapy, drama classes, holistic therapies, cookery classes, kitchen takeovers and dining experiences, music workshops, live entertainment, social events and more to people who wouldn’t usually be able to experience them.

BNR Founder and Director Hildah Munikwa said: “We care for adults who have a variety of complex and challenging and needs. We provide social living environments for them, with 24/7 care, to help them live independently however there are still many things that some of them cannot do — for example, going out for a meal with family or going to a live music event.”

She continued: “As much as we provide them with a better quality of life and the very best safety and care, many of the things that we take for granted are unobtainable for them. They can react very badly to crowds or other triggers and it’s so very sad. We’ve decided to create BNR Hub to bridge this gap by having a safe space where the things that they want can be brought to them — making the impossible possible.”

A place where the unachievable is achievable, BNR Hub will feature a kitchen, social area, specialist toilets and wet rooms, events spaces and multi-sensory spaces — operating on a booking system for their own service users and external organizations. The idea is to make it adaptable where it can be tailored to a variety of people with many different complex needs.

Co-Director Stefan Brunt said: “Every person is different and requires different environments to ensure they don’t get triggered or have bad reactions. We therefore have to be on top of risk assessments with everything we do. This is vital but also limiting — meaning some of them can’t have days out or things we take for granted. The Hub aims to change that by offering a space that brings experiences to them.”

BNR Hub will be collaborating with external companies and facilitators to provide experiences to people who wouldn’t usually be able to enjoy them. From restaurants providing dining experiences to musicians providing workshops and entertainment to holistic therapists providing treatments, there’ll be an abundance of activities delivered in a safe environment.

We’re very proud to be self-funding this new facility and hope that it can be rolled out nationwide — it’s going to change many lives!”
