About the service

The Union housing scheme provides long-term accommodation with varied support options (e.g. activities of daily living, support with finances, assistance with medication) that are tailored to the individual needs of people recovering from mental health problems. This has meant ‘homes for life’ for some individuals, whilst others continue to move onto greater independence.

Each service user has an identified personal worker who is responsible for the planning and evaluation of care given by the scheme.

The focus is on providing the support required to enable people to live valued lives in their communities and to achieve increased independence/social inclusion.
