Home / Sheltered Housing & Supported Living / Moving Forwards Supported Lodgings
I would like to introduce our service to you. We are a semi-independent accommodation based support service in the Middleton area of Rochdale. We offer 24 hour support and accommodation in a shared property. We work with people who have high support needs to enable them to integrate back into the community, either after a stay in hospital or those who are moving away from their local area.
We are based in a nice residential area of Middleton with good transport links and local amenities, the house is a three bedroom house with shared communal areas and a staff office/ bedroom.
Staff follow out a sleep shift during the night but are available during 8am- 11pm for support with daily living tasks, budgeting, appointments, finding activities, education, volunteer work and supporting service users to attend. We encourage our service users to engage with other services that may aid their development. They are also there to offer a great deal of emotional support as and when it is required. If staff are out with another service user they are available on the phone to talk to. We predominantly work with those who suffer with mental ill health or learning disabilities but we would not rule out anyone else who may have other needs. We would assess each person individually and create a support package tailored to them. We are able to do this as we are funded by direct payments or an individual budget. So for anyone who was referred to us they would either need to have this put in place already or be eligible to apply for it.
I have attached a leaflet about who we are and a referral form. Please feel free to distribute this amongst your team and if you need to please don’t hesitate to contact me for any further information Kind Regards Sarah Lamb – Support Manager Avanzar House Moving Forward Supported Lodgings 20 Boardman Fold Road Middleton M24 1GD Mob: 07842144576 MovingForwardsl@Hotmail.com
