Supported accommodation for people with mental health issues
Are you affected by mental health issues? Are you facing homelessness?
Curo’s Supported Accommodation Service is for people who have mental health needs and are affected by homelessness. The modern accommodation is centrally located in Weston-super-Mare at two schemes with great access to shops and public transport.
Who is this service for?
To be eligible for the service you must:
- Be over 18 years old and single
- Have basic living skills
- Have the potential to maintain your own home
- Be able and willing to work with a keyworker who will support you
- Be experiencing a mental health need
Access and facilities
The accommodation, over three floors, is made up of studio rooms with your own en-suite shower room with a toilet and sink and shared kitchen-diners and lounges as well as communal laundry facilities.
What kind of support will I receive?
With your keyworker we will agree a recovery plan to support you. We’ll help you look at where you are now in your life and where you’d like to be. Together, we will set goals that move you closer to the future you want.
We will work closely with other agencies involved in your support, for example the mental health services or addiction recovery agencies.
We will provide support aimed at helping you gain confidence in day-to-day living skills and how to manage your own home. For example we can help you make benefit claims, apply for grants and loans, manage your money and work on improving your cooking skills.
If you need extra, specialist support we can put you in touch with the right people.
An important part of our service is to help you to move on to your next accommodation.
Your key worker will help you to access accommodation which meets your needs. We help you to arrange ongoing support in your new home.
How do I apply?
You or someone who is already supporting you can contact us to ask for an application form.
What happens next?
When we receive your application we will contact you and arrange a meeting to talk about your support needs.
We will contact you within a week after the meeting to tell you if we can offer you a place. If we can offer you a place it may be available straight away or you might need to join a waiting list until a place becomes free.
How long can I stay?
The service is a stepping stone to your next accommodation. Most people stay in the service for around 12 months before moving on.
