Who supported living is for

Supported living is for people who need some support, but don’t want to live in a care home.

Depending on the amount of support needed, the accommodation could be a shared house or flat. The number of people living together also varies.

Supported living can help people with things like a learning disability or mental health condition.

Some supported living accommodation provides low level support, while others provide 24-hour support for people who need more help.

How supported living works

Support can help with:

  • developing new skills
  • daily living skills like cooking, cleaning and shopping
  • personal care
  • housing related support
  • your health and wellbeing
  • accessing the local community including employment and training

You have a tenancy agreement and you pay for rent and bills.

If you receive Housing Benefit, you could get help with some of these costs. Visit our main Brighton & Hove City Council website to find out more about Benefits
