Richmond Fellowship offers 13 units of supported housing in Newbury to people living with mental health problems. We provide flexible support packages tailored to meet individual needs ranging from long term intensive support for up to 2 year to brief solution focused interventions.
The service helps people manage their tenancies, maintain domestic routines and play an active part in their community.
How we help
We enable individuals to live independently with a specifically designed support package focusing on recovery and moving forward.
The support package will primarily focus on addressing any housing, debt and benefit issues and in addition to this any other of the following types of support:
Access to education, training, voluntary or paid work
Support in maintaining health, safety and well being
Support in developing support networks, faith, cultural or leisure activities
Support to develop daily living skills including budgeting
Access to other information, advice and support services
Who we can help
Our service is anyone living in the West Berkshire area aged 16 and above with a mental health diagnosis. Individuals must need support to find or maintain a tenancy or their own home and be willing to work with us towards a positive outcome for their future.
Individuals can self-referrals by contacting 01635230165.
Referring agents can request a referral application form by contacting us directly.
All referrals will be assessed by the Mental Health and Support Panel.
At the heart of everything we do lies:
- Hope: the belief that recovery is possible for every individual
- Respect: valuing differences and all contributions
- Enabling: giving people encouragement and support to achieve their goals
- Inclusion: the belief that everyone has a right to participate fully in society.
