Supported Living

Outward has successfully been providing supported living services for more than 40 years.

What is supported living?

Supported living enables a person with a disability or an older person to get the support he or she needs to live in and manage his or her own home. The support that each person gets is tailored to their own needs. By living in a supported living service, a person with a disability or an older person can be as independent as he or she wants, while also being supported to do the things he or she wishes and needs to do. This also means that the person can live in his or her own local community.

Supported living with Outward

We have supported living services in Bromley, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest. These supported living services are for adults with learning disabilities or autistic spectrum conditions.

Are you an older person (aged 55+) looking for supported living or extra care? We have a range of older people's services, which you can learn more about here
