Many of us need a little extra help to live independently.

So we've a few different housing and support choices, especially for older people, younger people and people with illnesses, conditions or disabilities.

Find out how we can help below.


Supported living: Cezar's story

Supported living

For young people

Our Endeavour and Springboard Foyers (housing centres) are for young people aged 16 to 25 who need a little extra help to live independently.

They give young people who are facing big challenges, such as those who have already been in trouble with the police or who don't have normal family support, a place to live and the guidance and structure they need to live life on their own, and make the right choices.

Ask us here if you'd like more information or use live chat.

For older people with special needs

We also have a supported living service for people aged between 35 and 64 who need a little extra help because they have a learning or physical disability, mental health problems or who are ex-offenders.

There's an emergency pull cord in each flat, and you can get support from one of our team, if you need it.

Ask us here if you'd like more information or use live chat.

For older people aged 65 and over

For all of us, getting older can bring a few extra challenges. This doesn't mean, however, we can't still live in our own home, with our own front door. But it does often mean we need extra help.

For older people, who are 65 and over, we have two different supported living options.

One is where older people live in separate flats in the same location, normally with some shared places like a lounge. We call this senior independent living. Some people might call it a 'supported housing scheme' or a 'supported living scheme'.

The other is where we help bring the support to you, in the home you already live in. This is our support outreach service (SOS).

Find out more about both of them here below.

Senior independent living

We have special housing with an inbuilt support service designed for people 65 or over who need regular support to keep living independently.

The homes and shared areas all have pull cords for emergencies and a dedicated support officer will be on hand in the building at set times each week.

Ask us here if you'd like more information or use live chat.

Support Outreach Service (SOS)

But if you're 65 or over, you don't have to live in one of our senior independent living buildings to get support.

Our support outreach service is for all our residents over the age of 65 who need help at home.

If you feel that you, or a member of your family, would benefit from this service, please get in touch or contact us on live chat.

We'll need to come and talk to you, and assess what help you need, but then we'll try and get it for you, sometimes from other agencies, such as social services.

Everything will be aimed at helping you live as independently as possible, for as long as possible.
