Health, happiness and independence

We know that sometimes people need support to be able to live a happy and healthy life and our supported living accommodation supports thousands of people across the West Midlands to do this.

Whether it’s round-the-clock support or just knowing that support is there if it’s needed, we can help find the right home for you or your loved one.

Find out more about our supported housing offer and how to make a referral below.

Who we support

We support people in our communities by providing housing with support in a range of settings including:

  • Housing for people affected by homelessness and domestic abuse
  • Housing with support for older people
  • Housing with support for people with disabilities.

We work with partners to provide accommodation and tailored support to help people live healthy, happy and independent lives.

Support for people affected by homelessness

Gateway is Coventry’s primary homeless residence.

 

It opened in 2015 and provides 77 apartments for homeless people. We house people from a range of backgrounds at Gateway, including people affected by drug and alcohol addiction; mental health problems and family breakdowns.

 

Residents who are 25 years and over are supported by P3 – a Family Housing Support Charity – and Coventry City Council’s Rough Sleeper Team, while 18-24-year-olds receive floating support from St Basils.

 

The facility offers much more than just a home, it helps people by giving them access to training and other support to help them build a foundation in their life.

Our supported housing in Hillfields, Coventry, provides 44 flats which are used to accommodate families with support needs in the city.

 

Families will also be able to access relevant support providers while at the site.

 

The accommodation includes a communal lounge as well as a play area for children too.

 

We worked with Coventry City Council and Laker Building Management Solutions to complete the work.

How to make a referral

Referrals for our homelessness accommodation in Coventry – Gateway and Frank Walsh House – are managed through Coventry City Council.

 

Make a referral

We have supported housing schemes which offer tailored support for people with disabilities, including autism, learning disabilities and cerebral palsy.

 

If you or anyone you know is registered with a learning disability and needs care and support but wants to live independently in their own home we can help.

 

We currently have vacancies in our schemes that offer care and support with a Care Quality Commission registered service.

 

We normally accept referrals from local authorities for these services. We can put you in touch with the right person from your local authority who will assess your application. Just complete the form below and a member of our team will get back to you.

 

Please bear in mind the person being referred will need to meet certain criteria to be eligible – including having a registered disability. They will need to meet the threshold to receive the support offered at the scheme. The local authority will make this assessment.
