Marlborough House is a specialist supported housing scheme specifically for people who are recovering from alcohol or substance addiction and who want to remain substance free. Customers at the scheme may also have additional complex needs. All customers are expected to take part in weekly drug and alcohol testing to support abstinence.
The scheme is located in the Islington area of London and consists of 10 self-contained flats.
Our staff can support you around a range of different areas to enable to you become as independent as possible. The support includes:
- Maintaining an tenancy with a view to moving into independent accommodation
- Linking in with healthcare services
- Reduce your substance misuse and offending behaviour with support via local services
- Budgeting and managing money and benefits
- Increasing social and living skills and broadening support networks

Every customer has a support plan that reflects your support needs and aspirations. Support workers regularly review your plan with you to make sure that it still reflects your needs
Along with the support we are also able to offer monthly tenants’ meetings and access to our Employment Team.
The scheme lasts up to one year, and when you are ready to move on, staff can help you to find somewhere suitable to live.
Staff are available Monday to Friday 8.00am – 9.00pm, with a security concierge on site nightly from 9pm-8am. An on-call manager is available via telephone for emergencies and there is a 24 hour emergency repair line.
