Supported Housing Service

Referrals can be made by clients themselves, Support Workers, Social Workers, CPN’s, LA and other voluntary organisations and posted, faxed or emailed.
Ty Betty Williams
This 4-person project was developed, with start-up support from Help the Aged. Its aim is , to tackle the difficulties faced by older people who have experienced homelessness and long periods of institutional living. As a result they prefer to live in a communal environment with support, rather than alone in independent accommodation.
Each resident has his/her own bedsitter room, with communal facilities on the ground floor and support is provided every day of the week.
The project is run in partnership with Grwp Gwalia and the City and County of Swansea.
St Matthews' Court
The St. Matthew’s Court scheme was developed in response to a gap in the provision of supported accommodation for older persons within the City & County of Swansea who have experienced homelessness as a result of substance misuse.
The scheme offers accommodation with support to people over the age of 45. It is run in partnership with Family Housing Association (Wales), Grwp Gwalia and the City and County of Swansea.
Support is tailored to meet individual needs, arising from alcohol, drugs, and daily living skills.
Residents are expected to participate in their support planning and work towards a degree of independence where possible, meeting all aims and objectives set out by the Welsh Government.
What can residents expect?
- Good quality accommodation and a level of flexible support that is appropriate to the needs of the residents and where support plans are continually reviewed.
- A responsive flexible service that will respect individual choices, rights and lifestyle.
- Support with access to health professionals.
- A trained responsive staff team.
We want residents to:
- Have a sense of safety and security within their own home and contribute to the development of the project.
- To feel that they can reach their full potential and meet their aspirations.
- Maintain meaningful positive relationships.
- Feel part of the community.
