Description of service and support

Crowther House has 12 self contained flats and a shared communal area, there is a on site office. All flats come with white goods. Cats and small pets are allowed, but no dogs.

 Staff offer support to each individual and support plans will be completed with the service users input. The support plans will be looking at small achievable goals to enable the service user to gain daily living skills to move on to live independently in the community. We also offer support to look at education/ employment, social activities and sign posting to other agencies that service users may need to use.

When service users are ready for moving on into the community to live independently, a referral can be made for floating support, where staff can come to the new property and offer support.
