At EverGreen supported housing we offer a positive environment where people’s unique qualities, strengths and abilities are properly recognised. For people who feel lonely or cut off from others, supported housing can provide a safe place to start making friends and building a better life.

EverGreen supported living is where group of clients (4) share a house together. Each person has their own room, but shares living areas with the other people that live in the house. The communal facilities and culture of the house allow clients to get informal support from each other. Household chores are split so that communal areas are kept clean and cooking can be done together, or individually as desired.

Our staff are qualified to provide personal care and support to the people who live in the accommodation and have been assessed as needing this support.  Experienced staff help ensure everyone is involved if they want to be and supported according to their capabilities.
