Who can live there?
Supported tenancies are available for people over the age of 18
with a learning or physical disability, or with a sight or hearing
In order to work out whether a place in a supported tenancy
would best meet your needs, we do need to carry out an
What is an assessment?
After the assessment we will identify and agree your needs with
you and discuss the help and support available to meet them,
according to the seriousness of your situation.
How much does it cost?
There will be some cost but the actual amount you pay will
depend on what services you receive.
Can I get help with the cost?
It is possible. We will help you fill out a financial assessment
form to see if you qualify for financial help. To get a
rough idea of costs you can call us and we'll work out a rough idea
for you over the phone. To see what some of the fixed charges are
and what sort of things are taken into account when working out
your costs, have a look at the page:
for Services provided in the Community
We may provide or arrange services for you but there are other
ways of getting the support you need. You can choose to have a
Personal Budget and use the money that you receive from us to
arrange your own support.
