Our partnership approach to supported housing encompasses design, build and support. We have the knowledge and experience to create sustainable solutions which leave a positive legacy and impactful long-term outcomes for all partners and most importantly the people using our services.

We work in partnership with local authority commissioning teams, social services, NHS teams and key stakeholders, including clients themselves, to develop personalised services that meet both individual and local needs. We do this by investing in new developments, remodelling or redesigning existing services and developing new services based on best practice and innovation.

At some of our supported housing services, we only provide housing management support. Where care and support is offered by another provider, we work closely to ensure a holistic approach to supporting each client’s needs.

We also work in partnership with other interested parties, including local Education Trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups and private organisations, to ensure we make the best possible use of our assets and provide relevant and appropriate services, to suit the needs of clients and stakeholders in the area.

Our services work locally and within the regions with specialist charities, support groups and community projects. Working with partners enhances the support we provide and offers residents additional experiences and opportunities to reach their goals and become more independent.

Organisations we’ve worked with include Foodbanks, hairdressers, banks, sports clubs, universities, schools and colleges. Read our news stories to see how residents have benefited from local partnership working.
