SUPPORTED LIVING & COMMUNITY SUPPORT SERVICES
Support to live independent and fulfilling lives in the community
Our community and supported living services are all about enabling people to live full, active and rewarding lives within the community. We provide support in the way that people want it, when they want it – giving individuals control over their lives. The service is person-centred, outcome and progression focussed. We go out of our way to facilitate people’s choices and aspirations.
We respect people’s rights, privacy and dignity.
Throughout the Midlands and northern England, Sun Healthcare offers:
- Supported living, community support and domiciliary services
- Intensive supported living services.
These are based on the social model of disability facilitating recovery, enablement and outcome-based support.
SUPPORTED LIVING AND COMMUNITY BASED SERVICES We offer support such as:
- Finding and securing accommodation
- Financial advice and appointeeship
- Daily living skills, taking medication and assistance in the home
- Enablement to access services, education and work placements
- Assistance and signposting to other community and leisure activities, including social groups and holidays

INTENSIVE SUPPORTED LIVING
For people with complex needs, who want to live in their own homes or with their family, we offer more intensive support services. This means that individuals can enjoy the comfort and security of their own home, but with specialist help from us, enabling people to make informed decisions about their lives.
We support people with a variety of disabilities, including:
- Mental health issues
- Challenging behaviour
- Autism Spectrum Condition, including Asperger syndrome
- Substance misuse
- People with forensic histories
- People with learning disabilities and associated early dementia.
Our comprehensive support packages include high levels of staffing (1:1 or 2:1, if required) and are managed by qualified nursing staff. 24-hour care can be provided as part of our intensive supported living services.
Our goal is to empower each person to move on positively, value their individuality and make meaningful decisions about their lives.
Gwenne Coltman is our Supported Living Services Manager, she has over 35 years’ experience in the field of autism and learning disabilities.
Our team includes specialist nurses, meaning that our clients receive the most appropriate expert help for their individual needs.
All staff are committed to promoting the individual’s privacy, rights and dignity, by embracing personalised support and enablement.
Sun Healthcare has a rolling programme of training and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) to ensure we are up-to-date with best practices, strategic policy and local and national government agendas.
Delivering a high-quality service is a priority for us, so we run our own quality assurance programme across all our services, led by our Training & Quality Assurance Manager.
WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP
As with all Sun Healthcare services, we focus on supporting and enabling people to become more independent, to feel a valued part of their community and to realise their aspirations. We do this by creating a person-centred plan in conjunction with the person, their family, and other involved social and healthcare professionals. The plan sets out the steps we take together to assist individuals to develop their confidence, skills and abilities.
Regular reviews, evaluations and measurement of outcomes enable us to be flexible and plan future support. We adopt a model of enablement, with the aim of reducing the amount of support people require as their skills and social networks grow. The person is encouraged to exercise as much choice and control as possible over how they live their lives.
We support people in a variety of settings; most people we assist have their own homes and tenancies, but we also support individuals from other community placements to access activities and services of their choice.
We assist people to overcome the challenges that living in the community may present, so that they can lead a more fulfilled lifestyle.
I like doing things with my staff, they help me when I find it difficult to do my cleaning and cooking. I like going out in the community, I like buses and trains and enjoy planning trips. I have been to Cleethorpes, York, Castleford and Bradford. I play football for Sun Healthcare’s team and go to Outpost Mencap and Soul Lounge weekly with my staff. When I’m there I like to sing and play pool with my friends. Callum .
