Supported Living Accommodation
Supporting Lives are a small organisation that run Supported Living Accommodation for people that find themselves in need of a roof over their head. We're an expanding not for proft with properties in the South Tyneside, Durham and Northumberland areas of the North-East. We work closely with our local Councils, Charities, Churches and Police force in a bid to end homelessness within the communities.
In each of our properties we set up our 24/7 Support Service made up of dedicated Support Workers and Housing Managers, who will provide support packages tailored to each individuals needs. Each member of staff is qualified and trained to assist with overcoming any obstacles that may prevent our residents from living independently, and help develop and obtain skills they may need for the future.
Working for Supporting Lives, we're providing support emotionally and practically so that people can live a happy and independent life.
We work with vulnerable people in different ways, and no two days are the same - we support people with physical health issues, young offenders, people suffering relationship breakdowns, and we specialise in recovering addicts and mental health problems.
Every individual is different, some require a hands-on practical approach, while others need a shoulder to cry on and emotional support.
All of our staff are hand-picked for their abilities to help with issues and requirements, and also their qualities, including passion to inspire and motivate, patience, and above all listening and communication skills.
Supporting Lives work in partnership with and are supported by a number of companies. Here are a few:
Currently we have 14 properties with a total of 138 fully furnished bedrooms.
Our properties come with a range of facilities to take full advantage of.
