The Hackney Mental Health Supported Housing schemes provides different levels of specialist supported housing for people with mental health needs in the London Borough of Hackney.
The service consists of a range of different schemes including self-contained and shared flats often with communal areas and garden. Some of these schemes have 24 hour support but the majority have staff available during normal working hours.
The service to help you with your recovery, support your wellbeing and to develop skills to live independently.
Support lasts for up to two years. We offer specialist, tailored support to people recovering from mental illness, and we support you to develop a plan that addresses your specific needs and aspirations. Your plan is regularly reviewed with you to make sure it still reflects the goals that are important to you.
We offer support around areas such as:
- Maintaining your mental and physical health
- Maintaining a tenancy and moving into independent accommodation
- Maximising income and budgeting
- Increasing support networks
- Links in to work or training
- Self-esteem and confidence
- Coping mechanisms
- Practical and emotional support
- Linking in with the local community
At the end of the service, staff can support you to find suitable independent accommodation in the local community.
Referrals can be made by Care Coordinators or Social Services for those people who do not receive support through a Care Plan Approach (CPA). All referrals come through the Supported Housing Accommodation Panel.
