Our Accommodation Services

Semi-Independent Living

These provisions cater to young people 16 to 18 years old with varying health and social needs. Our accomodations are a small group living environment that provides a homely setting allowing young people to receive targeted support and close supervision. Eliminating the issues of lack of engagement whilst ensuring young people do not feel overwhelmed and or crowded.

​Our 24-hour accommodation-based service aims to prevent and/or reduce negative behaviours in young people.

Our dedicated staff carefully monitors and documents every aspect of the young person’s daily living to establish level of independence and areas that requires support to develop.

The nature of our Semi Independent Living also helps to equip young people with the life skills necessary to live independently.

Solo & Shared Accommodation

Estherswift provides solo and shared supported accommodation for young people with health and social care needs.
Our solo and shared accommodation refer to housing options specifically designed to cater to the needs of young individuals who require assistance with their health and social care. These accommodations aim to provide a safe and supportive environment where young people can live independently or with others while receiving the necessary support services.

The young people we support may have various health and social care needs, including physical disabilities, mental health conditions, learning disabilities, or other complex needs.

The primary goal of solo and shared supported accommodation is to empower young people by promoting their independence, enhancing their life skills, and facilitating their integration into the community. These accommodations offer a range of support services tailored to meet the individual needs of each resident. This may include assistance with personal care, medication management, emotional support, life skills training, access to education or employment opportunities, and help with managing finances.

Solo Accommodation

In solo accommodation, young people live in self-contained units such as apartments or houses. They have their own private space while still having access to on-site support staff who can provide assistance when needed. This type of accommodation allows individuals to develop their independent living skills while having the security of knowing that support is readily available.

Shared Accommodation

Shared supported accommodation, on the other hand, involves young people living together in a shared house or flat. Each resident has their own bedroom but shares communal spaces such as kitchens, living rooms, and bathrooms. This arrangement encourages social interaction, peer support, and the development of interpersonal skills. Our support staff are also available on-site to provide assistance and ensure the well-being of all residents.

Emergency Placement

In situations where there is an urgent need for temporary or short term care, we are able to provide accommodation and support at short notice.

The placement may occur through breakdowns in care home placements, foster care or when a young person needs to be bailed from custody at the local police station. Emergency placement is done without planning or thorough assessment to safeguard their well-being and to keep them safe. This is an emergency staffed service that will also cover waking night where it is needed, depending on the level of risk at the time of placement.

Our Support & Guidance

Our young people are generally responsible for themselves and our role is to support them and provide them with guidance in accessing and planning for services that are relevant to their needs and aspiration. As we prepare young people’s for independence, our staff also work with them providing support with building basic life skills and knowledge that they’ll need in order to be able to live fully independently. Our support will include:

Floating Support

A holistic and personalised service set up to stabilise and continue to support the care leavers to ensure they uphold a tenancy at their own properties.  This service is available to care leavers who have resided within semi-independent provisions and who are familiar with support and relationships through the key-working process. We utilise our experience in providing and offering continuous support around employment and/or training. Our focus is to prevent the breakdown of care leaver’s independence in their new environments.
