Supported Housing

Kind of service(s)

Equinox Southampton Way Supported Living Scheme provides self-contained accommodation for men with enduring mental health problems.

Where is it?

The service is in Camberwell, London Borough of Southwark.

Who is it for?

Equinox Southampton Way provides medium/ long term accommodation and a recovery approach resettlement programme for men with enduring mental health problems, who have led chaotic lives and/or been institutionalised.

The accommodation is provided in self-contained apartments. The service has a full staff team, consisting of recovery workers, recovery assistants and a night concierge service, providing support 24 hours per day.

We compile a recovery plan with service users, based on their needs, wishes and aspirations and work through a programme of support and activity with them to give them the opportunity to re-engage with the community and to move on to independent living.

Among the elements of recovery plans are: treatment for mental health problems; treatment for any associated problems such as alcohol and drug dependence; life skills training; work and employability; community integration; leisure and community activities; and a planned, phased move towards resettlement.

Service users also receive personal health and personal social care budgets, to ensure the opportunities for recovery are maximised and the service user receives the best possible care and support.

How can the service be accessed?

The service is only available to people with a connection with Southwark. It can be accessed by referral from the High Support Rehabilitation Team, based at Chaucer CMHT & MOST team based in Dulwich. The service is funded by Southwark Mental Health Clinical Commissioning Group. 

The service also offers a crisis room for people who are in some form of distress in their current place of stay. This service offers high levels of 1-2-1 work with clients, as well as a high degree of monitoring. The duration of stay is based on individual need. This service is funded by Southwark Mental Health Clinical Commissioning Group and is open to all mental health services in London Borough of Southwark.
