Intensive Housing Management

Intensive Housing Management is a term used to describe the services provided by a supported housing landlord. The services are provided to ensure the ongoing viability of the tenancy with respect to the needs of the residents.

All of Ready4Home’s residents have access to the same Intensive Housing Management services.

Supported housing services and schemes

Our supported housing services and schemes combine accommodation with support. They are designed to meet the needs of particular groups, such as Veterans, Street Homeless, NHS Bed Blockers, people with mental health issues, learning or physical disabilities, addiction issues, people at risk of domestic violence, and those with historical criminal convictions.

Some schemes and services are designed for people who need support to live independently. Others are short-term and designed to help people acquire the emotional and practical skills needed to move on into more mainstream housing. 

Supported Housing Services

The support given to people depends on their needs.:
It can include:

Access to treatment services for those with addictions such  as alcohol, drugs, gambling.  We specialise in helping those with mental/physical health issues and learning difficulties.
Help with getting benefits.
Developing independent living skills, such as attending appointments, opening bank accounts, budgeting, cooking, cleaning, personal hygiene. We run a course all clients are encouraged to complete. This is How to be a good neighbour. This invaluable course includes modules such as  understanding Antisocial Behaviour and its effects on personal progress and the wider community. We offer several in house courses aimed at improving soft skills essential for living life independently. Increasing physical and mental wellbeing, including the ability to cope in a crisis.
Encouragement to reconnect with family and friends, or develop new social networks.
Assistance in taking up education, training and employment opportunities.

Peer Mentoring Service

This approach:

Increases positive behaviours by increasing self-esteem, confidence, belief and hope.
Reducing challenging or aggressive conduct through lack of understanding and fear.
Ensures clients stay in our support longer by reducing evictions.
Achieves the most positive outcomes for each person as they identify their short and long term  goals or ambition, and directs how they would like to use our support in order to achieve that outcome.
