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. (187 places have  opened , 10 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 September 2022: opening of six residential centres in partnership with other associations (five have been opened, one will be opened  in September 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.

What's new ?


Les Piloux, our 8th house opened on December 15th !!

 

Les Piloux is an inclusive crèche project with around 20 places, nearly half of which will be reserved for small children with intellectual disabilities (with or without associated disabilities, sensory disorders, etc.).

 

It was a very happy collaboration with the Asbl les Pilifs!

 

Construction was on schedule and the reception of the first children is scheduled for January, giving the year a good start ...

 

Thank you to all of you for your donations. The result is as you can see very concrete.

Creb Woluwe :Last minute news , we have just obtained the agreement from our emphyteutic lease holder. We can therefore submit the final plans to the administration, which will allow us to launch the planning permission procedure as soon as the administration's agreement has been obtained. This is excellent news and brings months of discussions to a positive conclusion.


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.
