Places for People sells to MHA
Not-for-profit provider MHA has acquired two care homes to add to its portfolio of care homes, housing and support services for older people throughout Britain. The charity has acquired Pennystone Court in Blackpool and Avonleigh Gardens in Oldham from the Places for People Group â€“ one of the biggest property management and development groups in the UK. The acquisition complements MHA’s strategy to increase its services to older people through a combination of acquisition, new developments, upgrading and expanding its existing care homes and housing as well as providing management services to other organisations. Places for People decided to hand over ownership of the schemes to MHA in order to concentrate on its core business of providing homecare and support to enable people to live independently in their own communities.
