Spencer & Arlington In-Reach Supported Housing provides high-ratio support for complex clients requiring specialist support within a cognitive and psychodynamic framework.The service is designed as a first stage occupancy and tenancy for individuals who are returning to the community after lengthy hospital admissions or are living in the community but their placement is failing.
The service is staffed 24 hours and support is offered around intensive in-reach support, housing and tenancy management, daily living skills, social inclusion and integration into the community. Support is also offered around enablement.
Service users placed within our services experience greater choice, support from a smaller staff team which enables greater consistency and continuity of support and also the provision of a physical environment that a service user can truly call their own. Our supported housing provisions are located throughout Essex, Surrey, Kent and London. Our housing stock is independently supplied by the Social Care Housing Trust, a not-for-profit organisation.
The Social Care Housing Trust provides the housing management, occupancy and tenancy sustainment support to the service users which includes establishing tenancy agreements, supporting service users in making their housing benefit claims, making arrangements for carrying out repairs in their homes.
