Independent supported living

Overview

Our Independent supported living services are designed for customers who need support to live in the community in the short or long term. The level of this support is flexible and designed around customer and commissioner requirements. Some services are specialised for young people, whilst others are open to all ages.

The service

What do we offer?

 

These accommodation based services are offered in a range of self-contained, shared accommodation and dispersed properties.

The service delivers Living Independently, Feeling Enabled (LIFE) support practice and a Psychologically Informed Environment.

The services support people to learn and develop life skills and manage their individual person centred recovery. Some services offer homes for life whilst some aim to support people to move into their own homes after a short time.

These services may have clinical colleagues embedded at service level, some are registered with the Care Quality Commission and others are supported by our central clinical team.

Testimonial

Step down services

Our step down services are designed to support people who are recovering from a mental health crisis which may have led to short or long term in-patient care. A clinical environment is not always the best place for full recovery to take place and our service provides a place where people can get ready to move back to greater independence and their own home.

More about step down services

Aviary House, Solihull, Birmingham

Aviary House in Solihull has 28 self contained apartments, four of which are respite flats for customers stepping up from the community or stepping down from hospital who are in a crisis.

Crisis services

Our crisis services are designed to provide a short-term placement for people who have reached a level of crisis and distress that cannot be resolved in their home. People using our services need a safe place to regroup and re-stabilise with a knowledgeable and skilled team around them.

Edendale House, Blyth case study

Edendale House is a ten unit service in Blyth, Northumberland. It provides a therapeutic environment to support recovery, working closely with partners to ensure a multi-agency approach to address multiple and complex support needs.

Gateshead young people, case study

Gateshead young people’s service provides 21 units of accommodation with 24/7 support for 16-25 year olds with mental health and complex needs. The service offers self-contained and shared accommodation and operates over two main sites. It also provides dispersed properties for move on accommodation.

Trauma informed services

The model for this service can be flexible in negotiation with commissioners, but we aim to offer long term solutions for people who have a primary diagnosis of personality disorder. This group of people have often had traumatic lives and experiences leading to them spending time in out of area placements, forensic or offending histories and a lack of effective therapeutic input.

Social prescribing

Intro and images

Our social prescribing offer is for GPs and other healthcare professionals to tackle non-medical needs, social isolation and loneliness.

More about the service

More about social prescribing

Home Group has responded to this growing need by developing and delivering a social prescribing offer. Our service enables healthcare professionals to refer patients to local, non-clinical services to meet their wellbeing needs. The services are available locally and how they work together will determine what the patient will be able to participate in.

Support is as varied as the individuals who need it - everything from groups of friends meeting for a chat, peer support groups, online communities, clubs and informal hobby or activity groups, to sports, arts and culture activities as well as more traditional charity services such as information, advice and advocacy.
