A place of your own
We work together with social and private landlords to find a home that meets your needs. Some of our supported living services are purpose-built or have been adapted and use technology that helps people to live as independently as possible.
For many people who want to live independently, getting the right care and support is just as important as finding the right home.
We have been supporting people for years, so we know what quality support looks like.
We can provide personal support to help you with things like getting dressed. We can also help you around the home, such as cooking a meal. And if you would like support to go out in the community A community is the people and places in an area. or to do your favourite thing, we can help you to with that too.
Support is available from a couple of hours a week to 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Quality and experience
Our services meet or exceed the standards set by the Care Quality Commission and the Social Services Inspectorate Wales.
We also have our own quality standards, What Matters Most, which help us support people in the best possible way. These standards have been developed to cover the things that people have told us are important to them.
We have supported many people to move from residential care or family homes into their own place or a house shared with friends.
Read our housing report
Take a look at our report based on research around Specialised Supported Housing (SSH) for people with a learning disability.
We've created this report to better understand the scale, nature and cost of SSH, draw on examples of good practice and to provide evidence to inform the debate around funding for supported housing in the future.
The report presents findings from research carried out by Housing LIN (Learning and Inclusion Network) into the scope and scale of the SSH sector.
