The Community Support Team provides flexible, recovery focussed support for people with mental health problems living in the community. Our support packages can be offered from between 1 hour per week to 24 hours per day and can include a sleep-in service.
Our aim is to provide people with a support package that enables them to feel safe & supported so that they can move forward, set new goals, learn new skills and do things enable them live a fuller, more satisfying & independent life.
Support is needs led, in that we recognise that each person is at a different place in their life. We make sure that we listen to the individual so that their voice drives the development of their own personal recovery plan that helps them achieve their hopes, wishes and ambitions.
Our team is made up of staff who are experienced in supporting people with mental health issues at a pace that is right for them.
We can support people who already live in the community or who are making the transition from hospital or other rehabilitation/care provisions, back to their own accommodation where the current level of support may not be sufficient.
