Huddleston Way supported living project

is a short-term supported living project where an individual can live independently with needs led support.

This project provides training programmes for tenants to help them learn the necessary skills so they can live independently.

These skills could include:

  • budgeting
  • shopping
  • cleaning
  • laundry

Tenants will develop their skills over time until they are able to move on into their own flat in the community. 

The community teams offer assessment, training and support to service users living independently in the community.
