Supported Housing is a type of accommodation for people who need support to live independently and do not qualify for care home residency; tenants in this set up are provided with supervision which is funded by local authorities, provided for by registered care providers, and where applicable, regulated by the Care Quality Commission.
If you are a developer or a residential landlord looking to maximise your cashflow, it is worth considering.
In 2022, our provider and Woodleigh Healthcare Ltd opened a new supported living scheme in Woking for 10 people with learning disabilities who have recently graduated from college. The Chobham Road houses are two attractive recently built six-bedroom detached houses with separate spacious garden areas.
The properties at Chobham Road currently accommodate and provide support for 10 tenants who are recent college graduates with learning disabilities.
The modern living environment and 24/7 care provision from Woodleigh Healthcare Ltd give our tenants the support they need to flourish after leaving college.

Does my home require modification?
Supported Housing can be offered in properties that would usually be let in the private sector. As such, major adaptations are not generally required.
In some cases, a tenant may need minor adaptations such as grab-rails in the bathroom, or a ramp or handrail to the front door. Permission will always be sought prior to modification.
Properties tend to require adaptations to ensure fire safety for its tenants, usually in the form of fire doors on risk rooms, comprehensive fire alarm coverage, emergency lighting, Thermostatic Mixing Valves (TMVs) and the installation of thumb turn locks that allow the property to be exited without a key.
A fire risk assessment is prepared and reviewed annually, and alarms and emergency lighting are serviced by engineers in line with manufacturers guidelines.
