Our services and support Services Supported living Our supported living services (also known as housing support services) are for people who have additional needs that could, without additional help, stop them living at home. Help is tailored, based on individual need and can include support with personal care, medication, paying bills, and generally maintaining their own tenancy/home. Supported living services may be to one person living in their own home or to a discreet number of people, e.g. three or four, living in a shared house. The Care Inspectorate also defines supported living as: "A service which provides support, assistance, advice or counselling to enable a person to live in their own home in the community. Housing support may be provided to people living in, for example, sheltered housing, hostels for the homeless, accommodation for the learning disabled, women’s refuges or in shared homes".
