As a reminder, Fratries Rennes will accommodate 13 young people in coliving, including 6 with disabilities or autism spectrum disorders, in a large building in the hypercentre of Rennes (near Place des Lices).
Since February 2022, the future roommates with disabilities and their caregivers have been meeting regularly to co-construct their social and shared life project alongside Fratries.
Joseph, who lives in an adjacent apartment with his family, is the house manager, the animator of the shared life who will accompany them on a daily basis to gain in autonomy, in close collaboration with life companions, employed by a local SAAD (Service d'Aide et d'Accompagnement à Domicile). Joseph is also their "job coach" to enable them to integrate professionally, in line with their talents!
Since 2022, major work has been underway to fit out this comfortable coliving and enable them to have large shared spaces, but also each their own room with private bathroom/WC.
> The plasterboard has been laid, the rooms have gradually taken shape and are currently being painted!
> The seated dogs have been installed in the attic, totally transforming the top floor, which is now very bright. Renovation of the bedrooms on this floor is also underway.
> After the work on the upper floors, the living rooms are currently being renovated (addition of velux windows in the future living room, insulation, plasterboard...).
The progress of the work means that we can envisage Fratries Rennes opening by the end of the year, following the assembly of furniture and fittings that will precede the future housemates moving in! Thank you all for your support in making this project a reality!
