Supported living is where an individual owns or rents their own home and has control over the support they get and how they live their lives. Accommodation and support is provided separately.

It can be very different for different people. For one person, supported living might be a few hours of support a week to enable them to live independently by themselves in a rented flat. For another it may be around the clock support in a shared house or self-contained flat.

We provide care and support at 26 supported living services across Sussex. Supported living is available for everyone regardless of the level or type of disability they have. In a supported living service, clients have tenancy rights as well as rights to welfare benefits including housing benefit, income support and disability living allowance.

Most of our supported living services are set up with the support of the local Housing and Adult Social Care departments. These departments will be able to provide you with an assessment of your needs.

All our supported living services are regulated and inspected by the Care Quality Commission. You can read the Inspection Reports here.
