Supported and extra care housing

Supported Housing

There are a number of supported housing schemes which provide support so that residents can eventually move in to their own home.

There are schemes for people with:

  • learning disabilities
  • physical disabilities
  • mental health problems
  • issues with domestic violence
  • problems with homelessness

Housing related support can help with:

  • becoming more independent
  • applying for benefits, budgeting and managing debt
  • finding somewhere to live and setting up home
  • access to other support or community services
  • support to access work or training
  • dealing with other professionals, family and neighbours and access to advice and guidance
  • support to maintain health and well being
  • security of the home and personal safety

Referrals can be made through Cumbria County Council's Central Access Point.
