After successfully filling a community supported living scheme in central Preston, and a shared housing service in Blackburn it was decided that it was the right time to expand our supported living offer in the Preston area with a new 10 bedded intermediate apartment model targeted at people with enduring mental health issues and moderate learning disabilities.
After discussions with commissioners it was concluded that a supported living service within self-contained apartments is the preferred model. This type of model allows two target service user groups to be able to live together and it could also offer a step-down from mental health hospitals.
The property is situated to the South of Preston in a residential/commercial area close to amenities. Each apartment has its own front door, kitchen-diner, bedroom and bathroom.
