The Supported Accommodation service works in partnership with Housing Associations, United Welsh and Linc Cymru, with funding from Cardiff City Council Supporting People Grant, to support 26 people in shared houses and flats.
Our skilled and committed staff are available to provide support during the day and on-call at night and work with people to support them to identify their goals and draw up a goal-orientated individual support plan to develop the necessary skills and confidence to live more independently.
The aim of the service is to encourage people who have long term mental health problems to develop the social and general living skills which will enable them to live successfully in the community.
