WHO DO WE SUPPORT AND WHERE?
We primarily support adults with learning disabilities and/or mental health problems however, we can also support people in the community that require help.
We provide support across Calderdale but mainly in the Halifax area.
HOW CAN I BENEFIT FROM THE SERVICE?
You can be referred by Social Services for care and support. Your Social Worker or CPN can help. You can also contact us directly or, a friend or family member can contact us on your behalf.
After a referral has been made, we conduct an assessment with the individual to identify their care needs and risks. From this a support/care plan is developed with them. Assessments are reviewed annually and care/support plans quarterly.
We value and respect people as individuals. All our staff are highly trained, experienced and police checked.
Support is developed on an individual basis. Sleep-in staff are available and a Manager is on-call 24 hours a day
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
If you are claiming Income Support or Job Seekers Allowance, Housing Benefit will pay for the rent. Support costs will be paid through the Supporting People Grant.
If you work, your payment or contribution will be assessed individually depending on your earnings.
In the shared accommodation there is a small weekly charge, which is paid directly to HF Supported Accommodation Services. In the individual tenancies, bills are paid individually with support if required.
Domiciliary Care costs are dependant on need and the amount of support required. If you claim benefits you will may only need to pay a small contribution. This is dependant on a financial assessment.
