10th and 11th houses : CREB Woluwe


Constellations in collaboration with CREB association / Fundraising 2019-2020 and 2020-2021

Project to extend and completely renovate the day and accommodation centres of CREB Woluwe (Children's Rehabilitation Centre in Brussels)

 

After the opening of the CREB Anderlecht, there will be 45 children in Woluwe in the day centre (we will gradually increase to 55 children) and 27 in the residential centre at the opening. This is the second CREB project.

 

The CREB Woluwe welcomes children and young teenagers with severe mental and associated disabilities.

 

To-day's buildings have become unfit(asbestos) and too small to meet updated norms.We need to rebuild completely or have to close. Specifically ,the ground floor needs rebuilding. A first-floor needs be added. The living surfaces will need to be increased by +/- 1 000 m² and will allow the upgrading of the rooms, the sanitary equipment … The works will be phased in time since it is impossible to close.


This will be the most ambitious project Constellations has ever managed. The cost is indeed estimated at 5.000.000 €. 55 children are concerned after the opening and 82 places at stake. More than 120 people work in this center. It is also their jobs that are at stake.

 

The dossier has been approved in principle by the College of Ministers of the Brussels Capital Region in 2021. This first step was absolutely essential. It means that we will go ahead with the project if we can find all the money needed. It is a long administrative process, but experience shows that once the agreement in principle has been reached, nothing can stop us, if we find the money.

This will be the most ambitious project Constellations has ever managed. The cost is estimated at €5,000,000. More than 120 people work in this centre. It is also their jobs that are at stake.

We have found the money needed to complete the project before inflation. In fact, we have already found the €5,000,000 estimated cost of the project including the equipment. Our own contribution is € 650,000 and we have found an additional € 1,450,000 from several foundations. Constellations' contribution of € 650,000 played a major role in obtaining the agreement of these foundations. These foundations are the Lokumo Foundation, the Rotary Clubs of Brussels, the M.M Delacroix Foundation, Cap 48, the Roger de Spoelberch Foundation, the NIF Foundation, the Michelham Foundation and the 6088 Fund. Cocof's contribution is estimated at €2,900,000.

Our avant- projet file has just been approved by the College of Ministers of the Brussels-Capital Region. This is excellent news in the very difficult budgetary context that we are all experiencing at the moment. We only have a few formalities left with UCL, our long-term landlord, and we will then be able to submit our application for planning permission in early November.

Constellations has a major role to play in supporting all the areas of intervention concerned in order to bring the project to a successful conclusion as soon as possible.
