A new Supported Living Service in Staffordshire is ready to open and offer people with a wide range of needs a safe and secure home where they can live independently with the care and support that they need.
The scheme is a shared house and separate apartments for seven young people with disabilities in Stoke-on-Trent. Due to its mix of a shared house and individual apartments, it makes the perfect first home for individuals making their first steps from a family home or residential school/college into independent living with their own tenancy.
Gary Dickerson, Development and Referrals Manager for Radis said: “People with a learning or physical disability or mental health need, will have the independence of their own front door along with a tailored package of support built around their life aspirations and offering the day to day support that they need to lead the lives they choose. Apartments and en-suite bedrooms are available now and we’re really looking forward to supporting clients to live as independently as possible in their new homes.”
This is one of two bespoke schemes to be developed as a result of a new partnership with Specialised Supported Housing (SSH), an experienced developer of high specification social housing; and Inclusion Housing, a national Registered Provider of social housing.
A key part of developing Radis’ Supported Living Services in the future will be its partnerships with developers and landlords to find sites, where housing to meet the needs of people with disabilities, can be built or refurbished.
