Our service at Cambridge Road provides accommodation and support for people with mental health support needs.
The site is newly-built and consists of one and two-bedroom houses. We provide customers with between three and 13 hours of support each week.
There are nine low-level supported houses and eight intensive support houses. There is also an office on site which is staffed from 8am to 10pm with a sleep-in provided for customers with more intensive needs.
Our services in the Cambridge area
This service forms part of our Cambridge mental health ‘cluster’ which provides a range of supported accommodation options for adults with mental health support needs in the Cambridge area.
The cluster comprises twelve sites ranging from self-contained houses or bedsits to shared houses with single bedrooms and shared communal facilities.
We work in a flexible way to enable customers to live as independently as possible. We focus on each customer’s strengths throughout their time with us and we encourage individual choice. Our team supports individuals to develop their living skills and gain access to education and employment.
Our staff work proactively with customers, agencies, families, advocates and other relevant professionals. The support we offer is based on Care Programme Approach (CPA).
Care co-ordinators from the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Mental Health NHS Trust are actively involved in customers’ progress, and we continually monitor and evaluate our practice to ensure we’re providing an effective and relevant service.
Customers are referred to us by local care teams via a monthly accommodation panel. For more information contact us on 01223 411 047.
