Supported Housing is where we offer you a flat or a bedsit with appropriate support. How much support and what type of support is dependant on your needs but the aim of the service is to help a person to maintain a tenancy, increase independence and live a healthy and enjoyable life.

The support from the team is underpinned by key features of Recovery; hope, respect, control and personal growth. We use person centered planning tools to help identify with individuals what support they want in order to achieve their ambitions and goals. The support can include:
• Help with skills needed to maintain a tenancy (paperwork, budgeting, environment, health and safety)
• Emotional support
• Health and well-being support
• Developing social networks
• Accessing community facilities i.e. leisure, work and education
• Enhancing people’s confidence

People are encouraged to be actively involved in designing their support package, the running of each service and overall development of the Charity.
People receiving a service will be offered a Support Worker. Support is available between 9.00am and 9.00pm, seven days a week. It is expected that most people will use the service for no more than 2 years although we recognise that some people may need longer.
