A customer at a supported living property

Stonewater provides a range of supported housing projects that provide good quality accommodation and support with independent living.

We provide supported housing for people with the following needs:

For young homeless people

Stonewater offers four Foyers for homeless young people aged 16 – 25 in Abingdon, Exeter, Poole and Swindon. We work with external agencies to provide young people’s housing and support in Swindon and Bristol, and to support teenage parents in Bedford and Bradford.

These are short-term projects to help young people to enter training and employment and move on to permanent accommodation.

For people with learning disabilities

We offer a wide range of permanent accommodation for people with learning disabilities, including homes with visiting support and homes with 24-hour support. In some areas we partner with agents such as charity Mencap and social enterprise Seqol to enhance the service.

For people with mental health needs

For residents with mental health needs, Hazelmead House in Swindon provides supported housing, and Jim Masters Court offers lower-support accommodation. We provide accommodation in other parts of the country through a partnership with charities Mind and The Kaleidoscope Plus Group.

For people with a disability

We provide several supported housing schemes across England for adults aged 18 – 60 with physical and sensory disabilities.

For victims of domestic violence

Stonewater supports women and children who are victims of domestic violence at housing schemes in Bedford and Southampton. We also work with Housing Associations in other parts of the country to provide supported housing. The Bedford scheme supports women of Asian origin.

For members of the LGBTQ+ community

Our LGBTQ+ Safe Space provides short-term accommodation and support for members of the LGBTQ+ community who have experienced domestic abuse, discrimination, hate crime or family breakdown. We accept referrals and self-referrals on a national basis for those 18 years and over.

Specialist schemes

In some areas, Stonewater works with specialist organisations to make sure that supported housing needs are met. In Surrey, for example, we work with the National Autistic Society to house people with autism. In Wakefield and Bristol we partner with Aspire to provide accommodation for people with spinal injuries. In Bristol we provide housing for the Addiction Rehabilitation Agency for people recovering from drug and alcohol dependency.
