Support for adults

Supported living

For people with disabilities or mental health problems, schemes have been developed offering a range of support and accommodation. This can include group housing or paid carers either living in the property or calling to offer practical help with things like cleaning or finances.

If you think that you, a relative or someone you care for might need help in this way contact Care Direct on 0345 1551 007 or email to speak to us about having a social care needs assessment.

Supported living review

We are establishing a specific commissioning arrangement for supported living to secure quality services and value for money where some hours of support are shared by those living in the property. To do this we will be working with service providers and talking to service users who are sharing accommodation to review what each person wishes to achieve by living there and the common areas of support needed.
