Independent living options

We want people to have a choice about where they live and who they live with. The right housing and support can make people feel safe and secure while also allowing them to be as independent as possible; more importantly they can lead full and meaningful lives. Options are available for people who are unable to live by themselves or would prefer not to.

Here are some of the stories of how suitable housing has changed the lives of some of our residents.

Supported living service

The supported living service assists people with learning disabilities to live in a shared house in their own room with shared communal spaces. Support workers will be on hand in case anybody needs anything, allowing people to be as independent as possible.

Shared Lives

Shared Lives is a care service that matches people aged 16 and above who want to live independently in their community with an approved Shared Lives carer. This carer shares their home and community life to support the person to live their highest quality of life. It gives them the opportunity to live in a family environment instead of staying in a residential setting or being looked after by support workers.

There are many ways to contact the adult social care team, both online and over the phone.

We encourage people who can contact us online to do so, as it helps to free up phone lines for emergencies or for those who don't have access to or the skills to use computers.
