Supporting individuals with their own flat and tenancy as a stepping stone to independent living
What is Supported Living?
Our Supported Living model provides each person with a tenancy in their own self-contained flat. There is no communal space as the services are designed to support individuals who are largely independent and who are working towards living independently in the community over time.
Our Supported Living services are also suitable for individuals who benefit from their own space or who may find it more difficult to live closely alongside others.
We provide flexible support and positive challenges at the individual’s pace to enable personal choice and self-worth in line with their individual needs, aspirations, activities and life choices. .
We initially offer a higher level of support with a clear pathway for reducing support over time as individuals become significantly more independent. When individuals are ready to move into their own flat in the community, we work with the individual, family members, their wider support team and our housing partners to explore and secure the best possible option for moving on.
Using Positive Risk Management and Enablement approaches, this model equips individuals to significantly increase their long-term independence within an environment where choice, control and self-management are embedded into everyday practice.

Our Multi-disciplinary Team
Input from our in-house Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) can be provided on top of a person’s support when people we support require further therapeutic and behavioural support and intervention. This is an additional resource for people who have had input and cost agreed with the person supported and/or their funding authority.
Input can range from rehabilitative support for someone in crisis; support for complex assessments and transitions; resolving and reducing emotional and behavioural issues through positive behaviour support approaches; observing, training and mentoring support teams; right through to simply being on hand to give extra advice and guidance to our support teams.
Our specialised and highly qualified MDT includes Psychology and Speech and Language Therapy (SALT). We also work closely alongside external MDT partners including Behavioural Specialists, Psychiatry, Occupational Therapy, dieticians and fitness experts.
