People take choosing where to live and who to live with for granted – we don’t, we understand that having these choices makes you feel in control of your life.

We support people with a learning disability to live how and where they choose in our supported living services.

A place of your own

We work together with our sister charity, Golden Lane Housing, as well as 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 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 latest housing report

Take a look at our latest 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.

Residential care vs supported living

"My brother presently lives in a residential care home for adults. Can anybody tell me the difference between the two as I have spoken with others and it doesn't seem to me to be that clear cut."
