WHAT IS SPECIALIST SUPPORTED HOUSING?

Specialist Supported Housing is based on the belief that people have a right to decide where, how and with whom they live, and who should provide them with the support they need to do this. Traditionally, residential care provides a full package of housing, care and support. A key characteristic of supported housing is the separation of housing and support.

 

This means that, as a resident or homeowner, the person has a right to choose who provides their support and can change support arrangements without moving home or move home without changing support arrangements.

Our vision is for a fully inclusive society where people with often complex care needs live within the community in attractive, safe and secure accommodation and have the same life choices as everyone else.
