Ambient Support to deliver new pilot for Mental Health services

At Ambient Support, we are working in partnership with Penge Churches, the Integrated Commissioning Board (ICB), NHS and Local Authority to launch a new pilot Mental Health housing support service in the London Borough of Bromley.

Stafford House consists of 13 self-contained studios and one-bedroom flats for people with mental health and related complex needs. This new service will provide an effective move on pathway for people into independent accommodation.

The support model will focus on tenancy sustainment, wellbeing, choice and control – plus skills for independent living. Staff will deliver flexible support, that will include core hours across the day and evening, combined with personalised 1-1 support to aid people’s individual recovery journeys. Ambient will also be piloting the use of smart-home technology to keep people safe in their own home.

Gina Benjamin Head of Business Development at Ambient, says:  We are delighted to be working in close collaboration with our partners to deliver an innovative model of support that benefits people with mental health needs to lead independent lives. Using smart home technology, we hope to demonstrate positive outcomes by moving from traditional 24-hour staffed support to a service where smart home technology enables people to be safe whilst reducing the need for onsite support.”

At Ambient, we are proud to have extensive experience in providing care and support services for older people, people with mental health needs and people with learning disabilities, delivering services in over 110 locations across the UK.   

Penge Churches has said: “We are looking forward to working with Ambient on this exciting pilot project which will enable our residents to thrive and achieve independence with individually tailored support”.
