What types of supported living are there?
There are a variety of different types of supported living we can offer, and we'll strive to find the best option for you.
You could choose to live independently in your own flat with as much or as little support as you need. This could be in one of our already established properties, or we can work with you and our housing partners to source a property that meets your needs.
We can help connect you to other people who might want to live independently too but aren't yet ready to live alone. You will have your own space but benefit from socialising with other like- minded people, sharing the communal spaces and sharing the costs of household bills.
You may be looking for the best of both worlds. Your own modern apartment with some shared communal space so you can choose when and if you want to socialise. We have worked with our housing partners to develop this popular type of accommodation.
This provides stability whilst you are between long-term support solutions. This type of support will help you plan for your future in a structured way. We will support you with the skills you may need to help you live more independently and, when you are ready, support you to move on.
We provide temporary and crisis intervention accommodation for those experiencing a crisis or change. We can work intensively until they feel able to reintegrate. We work in close partnership with Mental health teams, IST and other professionals to create recovery pathways.
We provide temporary relief for a primary caregiver, enabling you to take a much-needed break from the demands of care giving a vulnerable individual, our respite services provide a home away from home. Support can be speedily arranged in the event of an emergency situation
We accept referrals from NHS mental health case managers and provider trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), community mental health teams, secure hospitals, rehabilitation and recovery inpatient services, and social services.
Admission to our Supported Accommodation is through referral to our dedicated Managers using the contact details below. For each referral we will conduct:
- A review of the individuals history, needs and present circumstances
- An assessment as to whether the individual needs can be met as part of our robust placement matching
- An assessment related to the composition of the scheme's current residents
- Emergency admissions will be accepted, provided that the above information has been supplied to consider the appropriateness of the placement.
We review every placement plan on a regular basis. This is undertaken through consultation with the service user and representatives from the mental health team to ensure that the plan is current, appropriate and relevant to the service user's needs. Any significant change to the placement plan will be discussed and agreed at a formal placement review.
- Everyone, over 18 years old
