Welcome to the Constellations website


 

Supporting Constellations means contributing to the creation of new, inclusive residential centres. This means your help  increases  opportunities for people with mental disabilities. This  will enable them to lead rich and fulfilling lives.

 

 

Between 2008 and 2025, Constellations will have opened 12 houses with around 340 places. (137 places have  opened , 60 are under construction and 145 are being created.) These new places are either opened by Constellations itself or by Constellations, through a partnership with another association. All these places  provide approximately 15% of the existing places in the Brussels region.

 

Some details :

  • Between 2006 and 2013: opening of the first three residential centres, Les Bolets, Artemia, Orfea.
  • Between 2014 and early 2022: opening of six residential centres in partnership with other associations (four have been opened, one will be opened before  the end of 2021 and one in early 2022).  These are Villa Pilifs, Farra Stratégie, Artos, Le CREB Anderlecht, Le CREB Anderlecht, Les Piloux and La Toûne.
  • Today, three other centres are in  a phase of “active project”: Le CREB Woluwe (daycare), Le CREB Woluwe (accommodation) and La Forestière.

The running  of the centres requires professional support, offering new job opportunities to a large number of people,  for example young graduates.

 

Today, we find ourselves in an unprecedented situation. This is the first time that we are  undertaking so many projects. The situation of the pandemic has made the challenge even more difficult. We need your support more than ever!

 

All our centres offer a wide diversity of accommodation. Constellations' first concern has been to offer solutions to the most urgent problems we were confronted with, particularly the lack of places for young adults . We have also developed places for people with specific requests:

  • people  with a double diagnosis (mental and physical disability),
  • early childhood care (including a nursery)
  • children with multiple disabilities (mental and physical disabilities) elderly people.

The seven  centres that are already operational work perfectly, are autonomous and running costs are provided funded through the regional authorities.

September 1st 2021

Constellations is pleased to announce the opening of Creb Anderlecht, its 7th house

which will welcome 30 children with multiple disabilities.This will considerably increase the capacity of the Brussels-capital region and for those already hosted at the Creb in Woluwe  will prevent them from making long and very painful trips to Creb Woluwe.

 

This is a great time for Constellations especially as our 8th house is scheduled to open in November and the 9th in early 2022.
