Intensive Housing Management with Support Service
Stafford & Cannock League of Hospital Friends are committed to reducing homelessness and social disadvantage through the provision of specialist housing services primarily with those who suffer from mental illness. We are committed to providing services through individually tailored support plans for each resident within a framework of the recovery model, equal opportunities, diversity, anti-discrimination and respect.
OUR AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
Our key objectives are to provide modern furnished accommodation for those wishing to live independently but need help and support to achieve this.
We will work with our residents to support and empower them to achieve their goals and aspirations assisting in their resettlement and rehabilitation and enable them to safely return to live in the community.
Whilst recognising the damaging effects of mental illness our inclusion workers will work with residents to help them recognise the ‘triggers’ that can contribute to an episode of mental illness/offending and support them to develop coping strategies to help with the healing process. A holistic approach is at the heart of what we do.
