Residents in our supported housing have their own tenancy agreements and rent their own home, while receiving support to build the confidence and skills needed to live independently.
Individuals are responsible for their own bills and cost of living, which is usually paid for by the benefits they receive and can be topped up by earnings from any employment. Typically, people are ready to live independently or move on to alternative supported housing from between six months to two years.
Some of our supported housing services provide support with housing management only. This means residents receive only a few hours of support a week (depending on need) to maintain their tenancy. Support may include how to manage antisocial behaviour or budgeting and managing rent and bills.
