Supported Accommodation

SUPPORTED ACCOMMODATION

INTRODUCTION

Our Supported Accommodation Scheme provides 35 places, covering the majority of the residents of Cosgarne Hall. Housing Related Support is provided by a dedicated team of Support Workers, led by our Support Manager, Chris Abbott, based at Cosgarne Hall. One or more members of the Support Team are on site between 8.30 a.m and 6.00 p.m., Monday to Friday. Security is on site for the remainder of the time. When there is nobody on site, whatever the hour, a member of the team can always be contacted by telephone to deal with emergencies and will come  to deal with residents’ problems if necessary.

The aim of the scheme is to provide those residents who need it with support, advice and, where appropriate, non-financial assistance, to enable them to access and retain a home, to lead independent lives while in one of our properties, to learn how to become a good tenant, and to move on to other accommodation when they wish and / or are ready to do so.

Cosgarne Hall is open to everyone, irrespective of race, creed, colour, sex, sexual orientation and background.

We do not insist on abstinence from alcohol. We provide support and counselling for those with alcohol related problems, encourage and support them to address those problems, and do our best to discourage excessive and irresponsible use of alcohol, but we do not prohibit our residents from drinking, on or off the premises.

Our buildings are not prisons but we have Security on site for out of hours who have state of the art CCTV to keep residents safe. Residents are free to come and go as they please and, so long as they engage positively with the support team, to lead whatever lifestyle they choose, provided that they can do so without upsetting their neighbours (including the local community). The aim of our service is to encourage residents to live independent lives, but with the security of support when they need it.

As well as the accommodation, we have training facilities on site and our staff work with Addaction, Cornwall DAAT, Mental Health Teams, Police, Probation, GP’s and groups such as St. Austell College, the Eden Project and several other agencies, we organise various courses and other activities on- and off-site for our residents.
