About the service

The Sheltered Housing and Respite Emergency (SHARE) service offer short-term accommodation for people leaving hospital, providing support to help them reintegrate back into the community.

The service provides support around accommodation, debt management, welfare benefits, medication, using community facilities, setting up specialist community support, re-establishing contact with and support from family/friends, assessing and developing coping abilities and living skills.

The respite service supports people in maintaining an independent lifestyle while continuing to live in the community. The respite offered might provide a break for carers or an opportunity for a service user to get additional regular support. The beds the service offers can be used for a planned stay or booked at short notice for people who find they need a more immediate response.

Crisis beds are intended for use to help service users or their carers to prevent or manage a crisis as an alternative to hospital admission where home treatment is not indicated. The accommodation provides access 24 hours a day.

The aim of the out of hours telephone support line is to provide a service for people living in Calderdale, giving access to experienced mental health workers who offer support and advice to people with mental health needs, their relatives, friends and carers.
