Belfast Central Mission (BCM) has said its new £5m Co Down site for dementia and nursing care is due to be finished early next year.

Copelands, which is on the coast, will bring up to 50 jobs to provide dementia, nursing and residential care to up to 60 residents.

Copelands is being built between Donaghadee and Millisle on the former site of BCM's Childhaven orphanage and Craigmore children's home.

Construction work is being carried out by engineering contractors Hugh J O'Boyle.

All major ground floor brickwork, internal drainage and concrete has now been completed.

Copelands has been designed by specialist care home design and development consultancy Northstar.

BCM was founded in 1889 as part of the Methodist Church's response to social problems in the inner city.
