Supported housing

In supported housing, accommodation is provided along with support, to help you live as independently as possible in the community.

This is a good option if you are ready for more independence but are likely to still need a bit of support with some things and if you want to learn more about having your own tenancy.

In this type of accommodation there would be staff available to support you.

In Herefordshire, Connexus and CCP provide supported accommodation in Hereford city.

Connexus supported accommodation provides self-contained accommodation in a mix of 1 and 2 bedroom flats.

CCP supported accommodation provides 1 bedroom self-contained accommodation units with some shared communal areas such as laundry facilities.

A local accommodation and support framework gives us the opportunity to source local accommodation, support or both from landlords and support providers. Your personal advisor will discuss the options that are available with you and, if appropriate, arrange to make a referral under this framework.

Supported accommodation offers you the opportunity to develop skills to maintain a healthy lifestyle, access volunteering opportunities, follow a vocational course, attend an educational placement, access an apprenticeship, gain employment, manage your finances and develop domestic and social skills. Additional support is available where required to address offending behaviour or substance misuse. You are supported to have every opportunity to realise and achieve your aspirations and reach your full potential.

Connexus also offers a mediation and outreach support service. This is available throughout the county with a focus on providing support to find or maintain accommodation.

For more information about supported housing, mediation or outreach support, please talk to your personal advisor.
