Next Step Support Ltd provides a Supported Living Accommodation Service. This is a combination of housing and support services intended as a cost-effective way to help people live more stable, productive lives. Supported Living Accommodation is widely believed to work especially well for those who face complex challenges—individuals and families confronted with serious, persistent issues. These may include substance abuse, addiction or alcoholism, mental illness, or other serious challenges to a successful life and who also have very low incomes.
Placements are offered subject to referral and full assessment of the client’s needs. Clients are fully involved and will be invited to view suitable placements prior to making a choice.
Costs will be agreed with the placing authority as part of the planning process. Clients are likely to have been allocated a Personal Budget and may be receiving Direct Payments.
Supported Living Accommodation can be coupled with other social services, such as job training, life skills training, alcohol and drug abuse education and prevention programs and case management to people in need of assistance, including people suffering with mental health, acquired brain injury, or learning disability.
All referrals will be fully assessed, with input from the client and professionals, to ensure that the Supported Living Accommodation placement is a pragmatic and effective solution for the client, whilst reducing the overall cost of care.
