The main aim of supported living is to support and encourage independence for people living in their own homes.
We do this by providing support which encourages independent daily living. We support and encourage people to develop the confidence to carry out their personal hygiene, shopping and paying their bills.
We encourage social interaction by providing opportunities such as attending college, work placements, employment opportunities and socialising with friends.
All our supported living houses provide a structured environment where all our services users thrive when given the opportunity for independence. We currently have 11 houses in Northern Ireland with plans to open two more in the coming year.
Within Supported Living the tenants all have their own bank accounts and receive support from staff when lodging and withdrawing monies. Staff also support the tenants budgeting their monies in relation to housekeeping, electric bill, phone bill, gas and groceries.
