We’re an experienced team of mental health housing support staff with the knowledge and skills to support people to gain independence. We’re available 24 hours a day to allow tenants to develop skills and coping strategies to manage their own tenancies and mental health needs.
How we help
We work with people on a one to one basis, using a recovery based model and individual support planning to empower them to develop opportunities, gain skills and experience and make positive choices in their lives.
We have eight self contained flats for people to develop the skills needed to move on to more independent living, with our staff working individually with tenants to develop practical and emotional tools and skills to become and stay independent.
We can help with the practical elements of having a tenancy for someone who may have spent some time in other settings such as hospital, as well as the opportunity to develop skills and confidence in a community based resource.
Who we can help
Our service is available for people who would benefit from our specialist mental health support and the level of support offered by a 24 hour staffed resource. Initial enquiries can be made to our administrator, and applications should be made on County Durham’s Common Referral Form, available from the address above.
