Mind has two houses which are converted into eight self-contained flats, and rented to people with mental health problems.
The primary aim of the project is to provide, support both practical and emotional for tenants who are working towards greater independence and optimal mental health.
The level of support is needs-led and individual packages of support are negotiated in partnership with each individual and reviewed on a monthly basis.
Social activities are arranged on a weekly basis to enable tenants to develop links and become involved in the wider community.
Although the tenants have assured tenancies most tenants express a desire in the long term to move on to independent accommodation. In this crucial move-on stage the project offers floating support on a weekly basis.
