Supportive accommodation is often described as a scheme whereby individuals thought to be ‘in need’, are provided with housing and sometimes additional support or care services, in order to help them live happy, independent lives. At Time 4 U Limited, we follow a person-centered approach to this form of supported accommodation, in line with what is known as positive behaviour support (PBS). This uniquely humanistic approach is entirely focused at the individual level, putting respect, dignity and human rights at the forefront of any supported accommodation we offer. For those looking to gain the emotional and practical living skills needed to move on to other forms of housing, a short term solution will probably suffice. We understand that for some, a longer-term form of supported accommodation might require a more ongoing form of support in order to live their lives as independently as possible.
With positive behaviour support at the forefront of our offering, we are focused on ensuring the longer term quality of life for every individual through listening, observing and understanding to construct an effective care plan that is uniquely tailored to each person. We understand that individuals seeking supported accommodation come from all walks of life. From those requiring supported living for learning disabilities or maybe supported living for mental health conditions, to those who require supported living with complex care requirements. Whatever the need for supportive accommodation, the overall aim is to make social inclusion a key part of the service, and to ensure each individual is made to feel like a valued member of their community.
Supported Accomodation at Time 4 U Limited
The supportive accommodation we provide at Time 4 U Limited is set within a selection of prime locations across the South and South East, with a number of key amenities and transport links close by. Each of our homes are beautifully furnished with Sky TV and wireless internet as standard as well as sporting amenities and gardens where possible, meaning all of our residents are provided with a good quality of life. Our supportive accommodation properties can be found in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Kent, Medway, Gravesham and London Boroughs, and with such a wide range of locations we are able to provide for a variety of different needs and requirements.
Our residents’ time in our supported accommodation is designed to instill a sense of belonging, where a friendly sense of family is encouraged. To ensure the very best welfare for our residents, all of our supportive accommodation complies with fire safety, health and safety as well as other relational security regulations. But perhaps above all of the practicalities comes our extensive experience in providing support across three key areas of enablement, namely daily living skills, social skills and help into employment. Working closely with individuals staying in our supportive accommodation within each of these areas is imperative to providing not only a safe home, but also a real opportunity for a better quality of life in the long term.
Our Supportive Accommodation Referral Process
Here at Time 4 U limited we accept supportive accommodation referrals made by voluntary, statutory and private sectors. Once a member of our team receives a referral, an initial assessment will be carried out in order to decide which level of support is needed for the applicant. This initial assessment will include a home-visit to the service user’s current place of residence before any form of supported accommodation is allocated. A key part of the initial assessment will also be to decide whether the applicants needs can be met by our team, in conjunction with their respective families and care managers. Whilst we do aim to take on as many referrals as we can, we do have an exclusion criteria in place which details those cases we are unable to accommodate at this time. Our supportive housing team work closely to the Time 4 U ‘ENABLE’ mantra of Elevate, Nurture, Asire, Bespoke, Listen, Enrich to ensure all of our service users provide the best possible service.
