We provide support to people living in their own homes. Where you live may be described as a service in registered care, supported living or outreach. To us, what is most important is that it’s your home.
Our focus is on people and not the type of service
Whatever is happening in your life, your home is your sanctuary. Having the right place to live with the right support can help people take more control over their own lives. This may mean helping you to find a better place to live, making adaptations to your existing home or finding the right technology to enable you to do more for yourself.
We have a housing team who work closely with our support staff to share their specialist knowledge. The team includes housing officers, maintenance staff and a qualified surveyor.
Building strong, long-term relationships with local commissioners and stakeholders, like family members, are key to understanding the housing needs of the people we support.
People needing support, and their families, often struggle to get the right advice on housing and support. It can be very complicated. Our housing team can provide some sign posting advice to help you to find individual housing solutions and make things simpler.
We are currently focusing our building development to meet the NHS Transforming Care programme. Transforming Care aims to help people with the highest support needs to live in the community, with the right support, and close to home. You can read more about our latest developments below.

We are committed to providing high quality services for the people we support that meet the Care Quality Commission (CQC) standards.
We capture best practice information that can be shared with others and use a traffic light system to indicate how well our services are performing.
