Back Bailey's Pl,
Walker House is the perfect service for individuals who aren’t quite ready to live alone or manage their own tenancy without frequent input from a support worker, It is seen as a ‘step down’ unit for those that have been in a more supported residential service and are ready to work towards living more independently in the community, but may still benefit from the support of a worker who is available readily throughout the week.
Support is delivered via two Mental Health Support Workers who are based in the local area, Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm. We welcome diversity and are sensitive around individuals’ cultural & religious needs.
The accommodation is made up of 3 individual studio flats and 3 individual 1 bedroom flats, with all the units being fully furnished. A community ethos is important; while there is no communal environment for residents, there is a drive to establish a regular routine of communal activities in order to provide the opportunity for people to develop relationships, practice social skills and find the value in peer to peer support.
Personal centred support plans are used to gain an understanding of the individuals’ main support needs and the Outcome Star tool is used to chart individuals’ progress as they move through the service.
Walker House provides support to assist people in learning to deal with their personal challenges and individual goals, giving people time to develop independent living skills. The support offered is tailored to individuals’ own needs, with a focus on recovery and gaining the skills needed to live more independently upon discharge.
