The Penthouse is a highly successful supported living project for eight adults in purpose-built accommodation within The Coliseum. Funding for the project came from a variety of sources including the Tees Valley Housing Trust, the Quaker Housing Trust and Camphill Village Trust. It is managed by Creative Support and enables the tenants to enjoy a high standard of care and accommodation whilst participating and contributing to the wider community in which they live.
The Crow’s Nest Flat opened in 2015 and is a self-contained two bedroom flat providing a transition to independent living. This recognises that many people in fully-supported accommodation have the ambition to achieve independent living but may lack confidence or household skills. The proximity of Creative Support staff in the Penthouse offers help and advice if required, 24 hours a day. We expect that tenants of the Crow’s Nest will spend between 6 and 18 months in the flat before making the transition to full independence.
