All our supported living services are based on the needs of the people we support and enable them to make sense of and take control of their lives. Many people want to be able to make decisions and choices with the support of friends and staff and we will facilitate this so that people can lead the lives they want to live.
All of our supported living services are different, with some seeing groups of people sharing a house together whilst learning new skills and independence. Others have individual flats within a larger building. The next step for many will be moving on to have their own home, sometimes sharing with others, sometimes on their own.
We can even help support find accommodation at the critical time for them through our housing partners.
