Thinking differently about mental health and wellbeing

Home & Family Support

A stable home and family life can be crucial to supporting a person’s good mental health, wellbeing and recovery. We provide a range of support services which are shaped to be flexible and responsive to an individual’s or family’s needs, in order for them to live a fulfilled and independent life. We offer support in a range of accommodation settings, working with people on their daily living skills in order to prevent crises occurring.



Community supported housing

We have a long and successful history of supporting people to maintain their health and wellbeing through community based supported housing projects across Wales. Working with our Housing Association partners these services range from providing low-level support for individuals as part of their journey to independent living through to high-intensity support for people with complex and challenging mental health problems and other support needs. We work with our partners in health and social care to support the successful ‘repatriation’ and successful reintegration of such individuals back into their own communities.

Where we operate this service: Blaenau Gwent, Bridgend, Caerphilly, Merthyr Tydfil, RCT & the Vale of Glamorgan.



Support in your own home

Primarily working with tenants across the social housing sector we provide support to people in their own homes to maintain their individual health and wellbeing where their tenancy may be at risk. We work to ensure that any potential housing crises are averted, through ensuring that benefits are in place, or that rent arrears, or tenancy issues are being positively managed.

Our service is flexible enough to allow us to work with people with complex and challenging needs and behaviours, or to provide a lower level of on-going support that enables individuals to maintain their mental health and wellbeing and to successfully maintain a tenancy.

Where we operate this service: Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Cardiff, Merthyr Tydfil, Neath Port Talbot, RCT, Swansea & Torfaen.



Family Support

With the assistance of colleagues in Social Services, we work with parents who experience poor mental health, supporting them to develop their parenting skills and maintain the family unit. We use the ‘Family Links Nurturing Programme’ in our approach, working to address the needs of individuals through wider family engagement and support. The programme provides simple, effective tools to help parents and children:

  • Understand and manage feelings and behaviour;
  • Improve relationships at home and in school;
  • Improve emotional health and wellbeing;
  • Develop self-confidence and self-esteem.

Where we operate this service: Blaenau Gwent & Caerphilly
