The service you will work in….

The housing and support is a recovery focused and psychologically informed service, providing high quality support living to Hammersmith & Fulham service users with a maximum stay of 24 months. During the residency, service users are supported to stabilize their health and to develop independent living skills.  Service users who have demonstrated an ability to manage independent living are referred to Hammersmith & Fulham for an offer of accommodation.

In addition, Edgar Wright Court has three independent flats to step down service users who have made good progress toward independence. The three flats provide an opportunity to experience living independently, while being in close proximity to a supported residential service.  Service users housed in the independent flats receive specialist re-settlement and integration support to continue the independent living journey.
