We provide accommodation with support, which will enable you to develop the skills and confidence to manage your tenancy and move-on to live independently when you are ready.

How we help

We’re trained recovery workers who will assist you to continue to use your local mental health services when you need them.
We’ll also be able to support you to overcome some of the challenges that you may be facing and help you find new ways to reach solutions, when problems arise.

Our support is centred around you and you’ll always make your own choices about how you want to live and what you’d like to change. Having a team of recovery workers means that we can be available every day but you’ll also have one recovery worker who’ll be your key worker. They will help you decide how much support is right for you and when this will be. Your care coordinator from the community mental health team will still be an important person in your life and will help you to decide what support you may need at first. We think it’s very important that you’re as independent as you can be and will take the time with you to help you overcome some of the barriers to independence.

We’ll support you with your emotional health and be there for you and help you to find better ways of coping. We offer support for you to move forward in your life and to be able to move on to more independent living. Our support includes helping you to find and manage your next tenancy.

Who we can help

We can help anyone aged over 16 who is referred to us by the community mental health team.

Ask your care coordinator or community psychiatric nurse to contact us. We can meet informally so you can find out more about us. Your care coordinator will need to formally refer you for Botcherby Supported Living and will complete a form and send it to us. We’ll then assess the information and arrange to meet with you as part of the assessment. You’ll be able to ask questions and have a look around and we may have questions to ask you.

Our values

At the heart of everything we do lies:

    • Hope: the belief that recovery is possible for every individual
    • Respect: valuing differences and all contributions
    • Enabling: giving people encouragement and support to achieve their goals
    • Inclusion: the belief that everyone has a right to participate fully in society.
