Service description

Biscot House provides residential housing support for single males aged 18 and over. The service has 9 units of accommodation with shared living space.
Housing support staff are available in office hours only.

The service aims to provide housing support for adults with low support needs and residents may have had Mental health and/or Substance misuse issues, been in prison or within the criminal justice system, have a history of failed tenancies or have been homeless.

We can not accept anyone who is actively taking substances or is physically disabled or anyone needing nursing care unless they have a financial or external care package to support this.

Biscot House provides intense housing support to ensures tenancies are sustained. Residents are also supported to access community-based wrap around services and primary care, as they require. Housing support provided by Biscot House is led by the individual and varies from low level to medium support and guidance around tenancy sustainment and positive move on in areas such as:

• How to be a good tenant
• Rights as a tenant
• How to stay safe in accommodation
• Life skills around independent living that ensures tenancy sustainment

Biscot House provides support for clients to end the cycle of homelessness. Staff and residents work together to create a fun, vibrant and resident focused home, in which to develop vital skills and confidence to sustain accommodation in the community. The service goes above and beyond to make sure that we work with as many local agencies as possible, to provide a holistic service.
