The Willow project provides a unique service of 24 hour supported accommodation for tenants with complex and enduring mental health conditions. 

The project offers safe and secure accommodation with support tailored to the needs of the individual. Each tenant has a one- bedroom self contained flat with Coastal Housing and can live at the project until they have developed the confidence and skills to move on.

We support tenants to promote and enhance the skills for independent living in the community. Support is person – centred allowing tenants to make choices about their lives, wishes and goals.

The project has a team of highly experienced and skilled support workers that provide support with a wide range of issues that include:

  • Maintaining a tenancy
  • Budgeting
  • Benefit Entitlement
  • Daily living skills
  • Managing emotional, mental and physical health
  • Managing medication
  • Employment / Volunteering / Educational opportunities
  • Social opportunities 
  • Support networks/ relationships.

Willow community

We strive to promote a sense of community and belonging at the project encouraging tenants to participate in activities and develop relationships. Tenant feedback, ideas and opinions are core to tenants feeling part of the community. Tenants have regular meetings to discuss and arrange communal social activities and events that they would like to engage in at the project and externally. 

Following feedback from tenants the willow garden has recently been redeveloped into a relaxation area with a pond and gardening area. The garden is an area that tenants can enjoy to socialise and relax. 

Move On

The project acts as a stepping stone to more independent accommodation. The project works closely with the community mental health teams and other external agencies to ensure that when the time is right for the individual that they move on to permanent accommodation with suitable support.

The Willow project gives tenants the opportunity to experience living in a tenancy with the safety net of support with the flexibility of enabling the tenant to be as independent as possible.

Willow is registered with the Care Standards Inspectorate for Wales as a Domiciliary Care Agency
