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.
