Having suitable and stable accommodation is a critical factor for a person’s wellbeing. Together offers both 24 hour CQC-registered services and Supported Housing options for people across the UK. Our priority is to provide accommodation for individuals that best suits their individual circumstances and will support them to work towards the life they want to live.
All of our support is led by the individual, as we continuously strive to empower the people we support to have choice and control, in line with our service user leadership ethos. Our teams are skilled to work in collaboration with the people accessing our services to build their autonomy at a pace most suited to them.
We work with people to build on their strengths, skills and resilience, helping them to develop their own set of resources to support their own mental wellbeing. When they feel ready, we help them to progress towards more independent living. This might involve making the move from 24-hour residential care to supported accommodation, or to their own flat.
Our Progression Together model supports people experiencing complex and challenging mental distress to progress towards increased independence. As part of this, we equip people to take greater responsibility for leading their own support. We piloted this model within several of our 24-hour CQC-registered services, and a three-year independent evaluation undertaken by the Mental Health Foundation found that the model improves people’s wellbeing, encourages them to lead healthier lifestyles and supports them to live independently. We aim to apply the learning from this piece of work across our other 24-hour residential services.
To address the urgent need to improve the success of people moving from in-patient mental health settings to the community, we developed our Clinical and Recovery-focused Accommodation service (CaRFAS). This is a 24-hour CQC-registered accommodation service for people who experience mental distress alongside a range of other multiple challenges and difficult life experiences. Residents are likely to be entering the service from high-level support and secure settings or as an alternative to hospital admission.
“They told me at 18 that I was not safe to be out in the community, and I spent much of my life in and out of hospital. Together helped me to move into a wonderful flat of my own. For a long, long time, thinking of living like I am now was just a dream.”
