About the Project

Llanelli Housing is a 24-hour Domiciliary Care, temporary Supported Housing service which is designed to meet the needs of those who experience serious mental illness (SMI), have complex needs, and require medium levels of support.

The housing project is provided in shared accommodation for 6 adults in two adjacent houses. One house accommodates 4 occupants, and the adjoining house accommodates 2 occupants. The project also has a sleep-in room for staff.

The recovery process is managed using Adferiad’s Recovery Programme; this is used to promote empowerment and self-management, a commitment to progress and applying a whole-person approach. The scheme supports occupants to establish a stable, safe home, and develop life skills in the community to maximise their opportunity for independent living.

It is anticipated that people will move through the Project as part of their journey towards independence.

Eligibility / Referral Process

To be eligible to live in Llanelli Housing you must be under the Community Mental Health Team (CMHT) with a lead need of serious mental illness.

The referral process is as follows:

The Care Coordinator (Community Psychiatric Nurse (CPN), Social Worker), must complete a Housing Support Grant Assessment (to identify the person’s support needs) and a completed referral form, all to be submitted to Carmarthenshire Housing Support Grant Team. The HSG Team will assess and decide whether the individual referred is to be signposted to Llanelli Housing.

The Care Coordinator can contact Llanelli Housing Service Manager to discuss the proposed referral. Relevant paperwork will be required as part of the referral process.

Carmarthenshire County Council Panel and Adferiad Recovery Housing panel will assess the individual’s support needs (including meeting and assessing the individual referred). Adferiad Recovery’s Llanelli Team will arrange for the referred person to visit the supported accommodation to see the project.

If and when the decision has been made for placement, The Adferiad Recovery Service Manager / Registered Manager will contact you and your Care Coordinator to meet and organise a move-in date.
