SUPPORTED HOUSING–SINGLE MEN
Who is the Service For?
This service is for single men aged 22+ who are homeless or in supported housing (including hostels) and require modest levels of one to one support to live independently and manage a tenancy.
Engaging with support is a condition of the service. Clients are required to meet with their support worker regularly and work in partnership to achieve agreed objectives.
Supporting clients to overcome current and historic issues and to build the skills and awareness needed to sustain a tenancy independently for the long term.
Ultimately this service aims to help clients to move on to a home that meets their long term needs and aspirations within two years.
Levels of Support
This service is currently funded as low to medium support which provides for an average of 1 hour’s face to face support each week. There will be times when more support is needed due to a specific life event, more complex problems or personal crisis and we will always try to provide additional support as needed and try to find additional external support if required.
We take great pride in our reputation as being extremely flexible and client focused and our housing and support teams will always do their best to help overcome challenges whether large or small.
We are committed to providing psychologically informed environments across all of our services. This means services that are designed and delivered in a way that takes into account the emotional and psychological needs of each individual.
At the heart of psychologically informed practice is developing understanding in order to build effective relationships, communication and trust. Key outcomes from this approach include improvements in emotional and mental wellbeing, improved relationships with others, and developing positive coping strategies.
