At Woodlane we provide a supported housing service made up of six self contained unfurnished flats for single people as well as floating support.

How we help

We offer a housing related support service to enable people with mental health problems to live independently and manage their tenancies. We offer a range of support including money, debt or arrears mangement; support with welfare benefits; finding training, education or work, and support around social isolation. We also provide support in developing life skills or social skills and accessing other support services. We support people with their emotional and mental health issues.

We also offer an effective housing management service.

We work with a person centred and recovery focused approach, that is flexible and creative. Each person is allocated a support worker, who will support the individual to meet the goals or support needs which have been identified in their individual support plan. We work with a broad range of services and resources across North Wiltshire in order to provide a comprehensive support package.

We encourage the people we support to take part in our service user involvement meetings and through these to get involved in service delivery. We have a vey high turnout to all service user events.

We work from 9am to 5pm, Mondays to Fridays.

Who we can help

Our service is available to people aged 18 and over who are experiencing a mental health problem and who have a housing related support need or require supported accommodation.

Referrals should come via community mental health teams and the local authority.

Our approach

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.
