Firbanks Supported Living

Firbanks Supported Living is a 24 hour semi-independent living support service for looked-after young people, both male and female, between the ages of 16-25. We specialise in providing a combination of 24-hour shared and stand–alone placements with a comprehensive professional and psychologically informed support service. We offer both short and long term support and emergency placements.

The challenge of finding affordable housing is immense. Young people facing and experiencing homelessness is an increasing and visible issue within the UK. We’re on a mission to change that. We provide a safe place to live, for young people aged 16-25, across our services and move-on accommodation. Our pathway of support adopts a person-centred approach across three stages of accommodation. A dedicated staff contact is assigned to each young person we support and will help them as they progress from supported through to independent living

Our Homes

Our properties are all located in residential areas, close to local amenities, leisure facilities and employment opportunities. Whatever the set-up, we provide a safe and homely environment, where personalised support is delivered to help people live as independently as possible.

Through elements of communal living children and young people make new friendships, develop social skills and can get involved in group sessions such as cooking, gardening and film nights.

The Services We Offer

We provide care and support in communal settings: from shared houses, to purpose-built apartment buildings where young people have their own flats. We offer a range of housing with support, designed to meet the young person’s individual needs as below:

Supported accommodation – This includes short term homelessness relief accommodation where we respond to unpredictable requests and demand and offer rapid responses to meet the accommodation and support needs of young people including Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children. This includes Young People with severe and multiple disadvantage and includes trauma informed and multi-disciplinary approaches within in good quality accommodation and psychologically informed environments.

Crisis ‘emergency’ beds – We provide crisis ‘emergency’ that offer a prompt and brief response to Young People who are  homeless

Resettlement support – This service is for move-on from supported accommodation into independent living that focusses on the prevention of homelessness and mitigates against repeat cycles of homelessness
