LiveWell: Promoting Independence

LiveWell: Promoting Independence is a partnership between South Yorkshire Housing Association, Abbeyfield Grange and Together for Mental Wellbeing, and is commissioned by Sheffield City Council.

LiveWell: Promoting Independence provides recovery focused support with people aged 18 – 64 to make the transition from 24/7 residential care, to their own home.  There are currently around 120 people in the residential care system that could benefit from the project.

The delivery model has been extensively co-designed with those who have direct experience of the residential care and wider mental health system.  One to one support is provided for up to 9 months prior to the move out of residential care, and for up to 24 months after the move.

Our front-line team are from various backgrounds, such as Counselling, Housing, Occupational Therapy and Social Work. The team will focus on recovery, using a strength-based approach to enable residents to feel ready to leave a 24/7 setting.
