Supported Living Tenancies

Fraser CourtSupported living tenancies are designed to meet the needs of those individuals who cannot manage in a general needs tenancy due to either severity or complexity.

We have a number of specific properties across the region that cater for a wide range of needs, including core and cluster settings with staff bases on site as well as shared properties where up to four individuals can live together alongside support staff.

In addition to Loreburn Housing Support Services, other agencies such as Key Community Support, Leonard Cheshire DisabilityThe Richmond Fellowship Scotland and Turning Point Scotland help to provide professional specialised care and support for up to 24 hours a day.

As this type of tenancy falls outwith the Common Housing Register, the allocation of properties is arranged following a Social Services referral.

An assessment of each individual referral is conducted by a panel in order to establish which nomination is best suited to a particular property when it becomes available.

The panel consists of Planning & Commissioning Managers, Opertional Managers, Social Services, Housing Options Manager, Strategic Homeless Officer, and Loreburn Officers.

If a decision is made that a nominaton is unsuccesful, advice and an possible alternative options are provided.
