Supported Living

We know that people’s recovery journeys progress at different paces and people need different levels of support along the way.

So at Richmond Fellowship we provide a range of supported living schemes to help people bridge the move from a residential recovery setting to living independently in their own homes. In many of our schemes we’re also the social landlord and have strong track record in providing good quality accommodation. For information about our tenancies, click here.

Supported housing

We know that people’s recovery journeys progress at different paces and people need different levels of support along the way.

So at Richmond Fellowship we provide a range of step down services to help people bridge the move from a residential recovery setting to living independently in their own homes.

We’re a registered social landlord and run supported living schemes which provide accommodation and trained staff to help individuals to maintain their tenancy, develop independent living skills and access community services. Find out more by downloading our Supported Living flyer.

Although we have a standard, core provision, the precise facilities and support we offer can be flexed and tailored to meet local needs.

Our schemes include:

  • Placements of up to three years, or longer if appropriate, in high quality accommodation (communal and self-contained)
  • A named key worker for every individual, with staff on site every day and out of hours emergency support available at all other times
  • Individually tailored support focussed from the outset on helping people achieve their independent living goals
  • Structured programmes of activity to help people engage with the wider community, overcome social isolation and access education, training and work.

Floating support

With an ongoing national drive to support more and more people in their own communities, Richmond Fellowship’s years of experience is helping hundreds of individuals to live independently in their own homes.

Our floating support services help people manage their tenancies, maintain domestic routines and play an active part in their community.

Our teams are specialists at supporting people with complex needs and chaotic lifestyles especially those at risk of homelessness, ex-offenders, individuals with substance misuse issues, and those escaping abusive relationships. Find out more by downloading our Floating Support Flyer

Our schemes include:

  • Flexible packages ranging from intensive short term support to longer, regular contact
  • Mobile key workers who agree with individuals where, when and how they want to be supported to develop living skills, manage their physical and mental wellbeing and overcome social isolation
  • Individually tailored support focussed on identifying and progressing towards agreed goals
  • Close working with other agencies involved in supporting an individual such as probation, social care and community mental health teams.
