Our main aim at the Supported Housing project is to prepare residents for living independently; our team play a vital part in helping service users reclaim their lives through person-centred support. 

This support includes:

  • creating a move on plan with appropriate suitable accommodation, liaising with private rented sectors (PRS), sheltered and social housing
  • support with viewing properties and ensuring they're a good fit
  • budget planning
  • tenancy sustainment training
  • completing the necessary paperwork, setting up utility bills and agreeing on affordable payment arrangements
  • training on how to manage and maintain a property

Residents are expected to collaborate and engage in the search for their own properties with their keyworkers.

Residents usually stay with us for between 18 months and two years. In this time, they will gain the confidence to support themselves through education and employment, as well as learning life skills to set them up for the future. We have an open-door policy at the Renewal Programme so residents are able to stay in contact with us for familiarity and stability and our support is ongoing until they feel comfortable living unassisted.
