Independent Supported Living

NCCN provides support for people to live in their own homes through their own tenancy arrangements. There are several different ways of achieving independent living. Each person has different circumstances, and we are very happy to meet you to discuss the options available to suit your needs.

Getting the right balance of personalities is very important and often, people who know each other from day-centre or other settings move in together. We have found with careful transition periods and “getting to know you” sessions, friendships can soon develop to make for a happy home environment. Nicola Jefferson – our Learning Disability Manager – will meet with families in partnership with Social Services and Health colleagues during the initial stages and support the whole process and put the person and their family at the centre of all support planning, so that needs and aspirations are met.

Some families purchase homes for their growing children to share with friends, and other properties are owned by private landlords or Local Authority Councils. Different arrangements suit different people, so for more information about housing arrangements, please contact us by clicking here.

We often succeed where other placements have failed and we believe this is due to our enthusiastic staff team who are well trained and experienced in working with people who have a wide range of abilities. Nicola and her team provide training to specifically meet each person’s needs, working alongside other health professionals to enhance our in-house training. Everyone will have a senior support worker who is appointed to help communications within the team.

Above all, we recognise that the people we support are living in their own home; we are there to make it possible; to encourage independence; enhance life skills and to help people to live their lives in the ways they wish.
