Independent Living Service

Supported housing schemes are a group of homes that have been designed specifically for people who are older or have a disability and would benefit from the support of a Independent Living Officer and a 24 hour community alarm service.  We provide over 600 homes that are supported by a Independent Living Officer to help people to remain independent in their own home for longer. When on duty (Monday to Thursday 8.30am - 5pm and Friday 8.30am - 4.30pm) your Independent Living Officer can offer help such as:

  • Liaising with outside services and agencies
  • Housing related support (e.g. filling in forms)
  • Encouraging social activities
  • Responding to emergencies
