At Maynard Brown we specialise in the sourcing and management of Supported Accommodation.
Maynard Brown works within the community, providing homes for lower-income households. This is our primary purpose, and everything else we do is to support that aim.
Our homes are general needs properties in Bradford and Birmingham. These are charged at social or affordable rent levels. In addition, our providers offer extra care and supported accommodation for a range of people and vulnerable groups, including as temporary housing.
We take on properties of all sizes from Studio apartments to large HMO properties, right up to blocks of flats and developments. In some cases we invest funds into bringing the property up to a good standard for our tenants.
Our client base has been predominately developed through recommendation and the ability to secure unique partnerships to benefit our Landlords and Investors which is a reflection of our expertise and experience, strong service ethos and approach. We pride ourselves on this strong reputation, which continues to grow, and strive to uphold this by always providing the highest standards of service.
What is Supported Accommodation?
Supported Accommodation is any housing scheme where housing, support and sometimes care services are provided as an integrated package.
Some schemes are long-term, designed for people who need ongoing support to live independently, others are short-term, designed to help people develop the emotional and practical skills needed to move into more mainstream housing.
This can include support with health needs, including mental health, drug and alcohol use, managing benefits and debt, developing daily living skills and accessing education, training and employment.
The purpose of supported housing is to enable people to live as independently as possible within their community, with a real focus on social inclusion.
Supported housing schemes support a wide range of people, including those who are homeless, people living with mental illness, learning disabilities or recovering from substance misuse, people who have spent their childhood in care, are fleeing domestic violence, or those who are elderly and need extra support to live independently.
Supported housing services include homelessness hostels, refuges, sheltered housing and long-term accommodation for people with ongoing support needs.
