About the project
Malvern Drive Supported Living Service project has twelve self-contained flats all within the same building, eleven are for individuals who experience serious mental illnesses, and the twelfth is the staff office, communal space and accommodation for sleep-in staff.
The Service provides each person an individual care and support package. The support to individuals is to enable each person to be as independent, active and as safe as possible, whilst promoting and protesting their human rights and affording them the very best quality of life.
Malvern Drive Supported Living Service staff will work alongside other professionals, Mental Health services, Families, carers and other organisations to provide an outcome based service to promote well-being and recovery, which focuses on their needs, aspirations and priorities of each occupant.
The Service will give the individuals opportunities to develop their independent living skills, to maintain their tenancy’s.
The project is staffed 24 x 7, including a sleep-in staff member.
