Our supported living services offer an independent lifestyle within the community, but with help from our support workers to do the things you may be struggling to cope with on your own. This could be anything from helping you to get out of bed, getting to the shops, managing housework or keeping on top of your finances and personal care.
With over 180 supported living services around England and Wales, designed to support adults with learning disabilities, autism and associated conditions, we can help your find the perfect accommodation and support for you or those you care for.
Most supported living homes are shared by 2 or 3 adults, and we will always make sure that you feel comfortable with the people you will be living with. It’s typically a less supervised form of support than a residential service, and feels more like having your own place.
You’ll also be able to plan your own transition into the accommodation with our support team, making for a positive experience as you adjust to your new home.
We can help you if you’re an adult over the age of 18, or soon to be, and are looking for somewhere to live that gives you an independent lifestyle but with some support day to day, or through the night. Generally, supported living housing is suitable for people who are more able.
Here at Achieve together, we’re proud to support adults with learning disabilities and autism spectrum conditions, who may also have complex needs and challenging behaviours, mental health challenges, are deaf and/or blind.
We can help you to live independently with the right care and support. This may be a few hours every week, 24 hours a day, or somewhere in between.
Access to our supported living services is typically funded by your local authority or healthcare provider. You can contact us for more information about how to arrange funding.
When considering if supported living is right for you or someone you care for, location is an important factor. You may be looking for supported living services near to where you’re currently living. You can see which areas in England and Wales that our supported living accommodation is based to help you find some suitable options.
Another important consideration when choosing supported living services is how independent you are and wish to be. You may want to live alone, or you may prefer to share with another person or people. It’s best to talk to your support and health workers about this so that they can find you exactly what you are looking for in your supported living housing.
The cost of our supported living services is bespoke to each person we support. To find out how to support the funding of supported living accommodation and assistance, get in touch with our referrals hub who will be happy to help.
