About the project
Llanelli Housing is a 24 hour Domiciliary Care, temporary Supported Housing service which is designed to meet the needs for 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 Recovery’s Recovery Programme; this is used to promote empowerment and self-management, a commitment to progress and applying a whole person approach. The scheme is to support occupants to establish a stable safe home, develop life skills in the community and to maximise their opportunity for independent living.
It is anticipated that people will move through the Project as part of their journey towards independence.
Gloucester Terrace is a shared accommodation for up to 6 occupants.
The 24 hour support includes one sleep in staff and one waking night staff member.
