The Customer

Empowerment, based in Blackpool, is an innovative charity that helps people get their voices heard and provides a range of support services.

The charity has made a long term commitment to supporting the local community and improving lives, no matter the person’s background. Following the tragic death of Elliot Taylor, who died of suicide in 2020, the charity were approached by Elliot’s friends and family for support. Together, they decided to create a community support space for young men in Blackpool to address any issues that affect their mental health immediately.

The Challenge and Solution

The charity tasked S Jones Containers with the design and installation of the mental health sanctuary, named Elliot’s Place. The space needed to provide a safe space for men in the local community for men suffering with mental health and to visit and receive immediate support when needed.

The conversions team designed a bespoke 26m2 ‘L’-shape unit from prefabricated modular container units. Two insulated glazed units complete with full electrics were fabricated and delivered to the site. Thanks to the unique ‘L’ shape, Elliot’s Place can be divided into two separate rooms to offer mental health support services for a number of people.

What Empowerment Had To Say

It’s fantastic to see the final structure in place, ready to welcome the young men who really need the mental health support services from us.

We’re so pleased we have created a sanctuary where we can remember Elliot and celebrate his life, and also a safe place for other young men to share their troubles and alleviate any mental health struggles.
