Supported living

Supported living is about supporting people to live in their own home, either as an owner or as a tenant, with their own rights to this home and with our support workers invited as guests to support them to undertake normal community living. It is different from a care home because a person has rights to their home and can make choices about who and how their support is provided. While in care homes, the home and the provision of the home care is provided by the same organisation.

Within supported living people have greater choice over who they live with and where they live. They are supported to take on responsibilities for normal household activities such as paying bills, managing their money and being a good tenant or home owner. We have supported many people to move from hospitals or care homes and they have flourished with the change, being able to be more active in their local community. Affinity Trust supports many people with all aspects of their lives, including 24 hour support within their home and meeting sometimes very complex and specialist support needs, to sometimes just providing several hours a week.

For every person we support in supported living we enable them to follow their aspirations, to develop their skills, to find work if they want to and to be as independent and self-supporting as they are capable of. Whilst we believe there can be very well run care homes, supported living is our preferred approach as we believe in supporting the rights, choices and control afforded to people within supported living.
