Specialist Supported Housing options coming online 2018
Avondalecare have been working with a number of investors and Registered Social Landlords during 2018 to develop and bring to market a number of new renovated shared and single occupancy opportunities for service users. As standard shared units have an en-suite and a welfare kitchenette as well as a share of a house kitchen. Removing and reducing the need to share facilities, helps improve relationships within a house, but at the same time allows individuals the opportunity for regular contact with staff and other residents.
It has been noted by the NHS as part of the Five year forward view for mental health that suitable and safe housing is critical to the prevention of mental health problems and the promotion of recovery. It is certainly noted that in our area there is an obvious link between poor housing and poor socioeconomic environments and poor mental health. We therefore had made efforts to establish specialist support housing options across the county in more stable social environments.
As these units open we will post more information.
