With supported living, the people we support:
- usually choose who lives with them, who comes into their house, and who supports them.
- have their own keys
- pay bills and buy their own food and other items
- are supported to be good tenants
- choose to shop and cook on their own or as a group.
Our staff don’t necessarily have an office in the property, except where overnight sleep-ins are needed.
We have helped many people move into these houses from Residential and Care homes. They have flourished with the change and become more active and independent in their local community.
We aim for everyone in supported living to follow their aspirations, develop their skills, find work if they want to, and be as independent and self-supporting as they can.
Supported living is our preferred approach as we believe it gives people more rights, choices and control.
Our supported living care programme helps disabled people to live more independent and happy lives. We actively encourage the discovery of new skills and interests, supporting individuals in the community.
Our programme provides support for people with:
- Learning difficulties
- Mental health problems
- Autistic spectrum conditions
- Physical disabilities
Becoming part of the community is central to our programme, job seeking or playing a part in local voluntary activities are some of the things that we promote and encourage. Developing relationships are supported through good and difficult times.
Everyone has a common set of needs. We also have an expert and deep understanding of the different ethnic minority and faith groups. For example, helping you get to your local place of worship, or any dietary needs that are required.
We have a range of flats and houses available across the Leicestershire and Northamptonshire Counties.
