Our Supported Living Services
Our supported living services provide innovative and person-centred support enabling people with autism, learning disabilities, mental health illnesses and challenging behaviours to live as independently as possible within their own homes and in the local community.
The support provided is person-centred and specifically tailored to meet every unique need, underpinned by our philosophy that every individual has the right to live the life they choose for themselves.

A safe and supportive environment
Our supported Living services provides care and support for adults with complex needs including dual diagnoses of learning disability, Epilepsy , Autistic spectrum (including Asperger’s Syndrome) and / or mental illness is available. The houses which are part of the local communities provide a safe and supportive environment, which allows everyone the opportunity to develop skills for more independent living in the future. We encourage all to engage in meaningful activity, ensuring a balance of self-care, leisure and productivity (employment/education).
Our service is part of the mental health care pathway; it is a modern, non-clinical environment that supports people moving from secure environments into the community. We also support people in transition from secure forensic services to community living. We can support people informally, on community treatment orders and conditional discharge from the Mental Health Act before the move into the community.
The service provides person-centred care by helping people create their own care plans, identifying personal needs, the outcomes that they want in their life, and how our staff will support them in achieving this on their recovery journey. The service promotes the social inclusion of our service users, through challenging stigma and discrimination; encouraging re-integration and participation in the community, and focusing on education and employment. It also promotes positive risk taking, to increase a service user’s confidence and move towards their goals in small achievable milestones,
