Mavam Supported Housing provides bespoke support designed to meet people’s needs. Our support is provided in a safe environment for people living with mental health distress, learning disabilities and other complex issues, our goal is to help people to live an independent life as possible. We provide several 24hr supported housing projects in Ipswich, Stowmarket, Sudbury and Lowestoft with a member of staff sleeping in at night to respond to emergencies. Many of our rooms have their own bathrooms, whilst some projects contain self-contained flats.
Mavam Supported Housing believes in working with an individual’s strengths to develop daily living skills which will improve their quality of life and may give them the confidence to live independently within the community once again.
Working in a structured way, we look to develop a service user’s self-reliance, understanding and self-belief so that they may reach their goals and reclaim their autonomy.
We offer a range of support packages which are based on an individual’s need.
All staff undertake a comprehensive training programme which includes: Medication, Privacy, Dignity and Safe Caring, Safeguarding, Risk Assessment, Key-working, Breakaway & De-escalation, Communication, Active Support, Substance Misuse, Food Safety, Fire Safety, COSHH and Manual Handling
Many staff work towards a professional qualification such as an NVQ.
