Hillpark Crescent Supported Accommodation - Colebrook
We offer supported housing with flexible packages of support for vulnerable people in the city, with mental health and/or learning disabilities.
Hillpark Crescent is situated near the busy community of Mutley Plain on North Road. There are plenty of local facilities, on the main bus route and it is a short walk to the City Centre/University of Plymouth.
The overall aim of the project is to provide longer-term quality housing and support to adults with mental health issues, learning disability / difficulty promoting independence to suit the individual's needs.
Each client has their own fully furnished room. Communal areas include a fully fitted kitchen, bathrooms, lounge and laundry facilities.
The project is staffed by the Supported Accommodation Team who are available every day (at hours suitable to the needs of the clients living there at the time) with an On Call Emergency telephone support service outside of these hours.
