Specialist supported accommodation

How do we help?

Some people need a bit of extra care and investment to help them live a better life. Our specialist support and accommodation provision enables people with very specific needs to find the best way for them to live their day to day lives.

Our specialist accommodation has a focus on recovery as well as helping people who wish to continue living their chosen lifestyle stay safer and healthier.

At SSJ we believe that recovery often means different things to different people. At SSJ we believe that people should be offered as many different options as possible to help them engage with change. We are not focused on abstinence as the only option – we recognise this works for some people but for many others it is unrealistic.

Choice is something that everyone is entitled to, even if sometimes those choices are not always wise!
