How we help at Russell and Raywell Street?
Located on Russell Street and Raywell Street in central Hull, we offer supported housing for men and women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness who have learning disabilities.
We support the vulnerable, including those with complex needs, and deliver individual Support Plans to help build confidence to live independently.
- Self-contained flats with own bathroom and kitchen, or bedsits with shared facilities between two people
- One-to-one Support Plans developed with you and your families, with weekly meetings and regular reviews
- Support staff on site with out-of-hours telephone support
- Access to agencies and organisations such as Community Learning Disability Teams, Recovery and Support Teams and Social Services
- Support with applying for benefits, tenancy management and debt
How it works
You’ll be male or female, aged 18 or above and have a Learning Disability, including complex needs.
Accommodation is long-term but we will help you move on to suitable accommodation once you are confident and able. Referrals are made by agencies and families living in Hull. You’ll be in receipt of benefits and requiring support.
Getting the most out of our service
- You’ll learn how to build awareness to maintain your Learning Disability with improved confidence around practical skills, from reducing debts to maintaining a tenancy.
- We’ll support your self-esteem and help you improve relationships with family and friends, and create your own network of support.
- We’ll provide follow-up tenancy support after you leave with access to supported resettlement properties.
Why we are different
Our support focuses on you making choices, taking appropriate risks and taking control of your life. From our stable, secure base, we’ll help you plan for day-to-day living and to look to the future. We understand how important a home is, but also how crucial support networks are to ensure you are not isolated and are engaged in your wider community.
