Prospect Housing and Support Services
Prospect Housing and Support Services was formed in 1989 by several local organisations and authorities, who wanted to improve housing facilities for people with learning disabilities and mental health problems, so they could live independently. The organisation now runs a variety independent living schemes for vulnerable adults and people with physical and learning disabilities and other special needs. Their current properties and projects in Mid and East Surrey and the London Borough of Sutton include: nine residential care homes for people with learning disabilities, a care home for carers of young people (18 – 30 yrs) with learning disabilities and supported independent living for people with a learning disability, acquired brain injury, mental ill-health, sensory impairment, and people with Asperger’s Syndrome, as well as other residential and domiciliary support to over 40 young people with a learning disability to give their carers a break.
Quo Vadis Trust (QVT)
Quo Vadis Trust is a charity, company limited by guarantee and Housing Association that provides social housing to Londoners who experience a temporary or permanent deterioration in their mental health and are in need of support to aid recovery and remain as independent as possible. Their mission is summarised as “Supporting Recovery, Maximising Independence”.
The Trust was set up by property owners and developers who saw an opportunity to help disadvantaged individuals with mental ill health. The organisation grew to 110 places in 13 rented houses over 10 years mainly in Lewisham but also in Croydon and Bexley.
Greensleeves Homes Trust is a highly innovative, social care charity responding to the changing needs of older people and provides residential, dementia and nursing care across 17 homes in the Midlands, Southern and Eastern England. The charity's mission is to offer high quality care through a commitment to the core values of privacy, dignity, independence, choice, rights and fulfilment: their homes offer comfortable surroundings and stimulating environments and encourage their residents to exercise personal autonomy and choice by providing the support needed to enable older people to pursue their interests and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
