The house has 6 bedrooms and communal living spaces as well as a large garden. Support is provided 1-1 and in small groups and focuses on social and emotional needs. Staff work with residents to access their usual support networks and identify new sources of support.

The house has 4 bedrooms and communal living spaces. We provide intensive support with securing qood quality, permanent accommodation and practical assistance with daily living tasks such as budgeting, meal planning and cooking, paying bills and dealing with post.

I found that getting support for my son was very difficult (he has paranoid Schizophrenia) and was resistant to accepting the support he needs. Debbie has worked hard to build a relationship with him and gained his trust and has been patient and understanding of his difficulties. I would highly recommend enable support to families, carers and service users.

What clients are saying

Outstanding level of care, everyone was so kind and supportive . All staff had their own qualities which contributed towards the team.
I am so happy I was referred to Enable, I had lost all hope and was ready to give up, from the moment I walked in I felt safe, and so nice to be able to talk without being judged and feel hopeful for the future.
The service provided me a vital stepping stone from hospital to home and so grateful for the support and encouragement.
If you are suffering from anxiety and depression, Enable will give you the support you need to come out and cope with situations.
