We provide a range of services in Leeds, Kirklees, Wakefield and York. Many of the people receiving services have severe and enduring mental health problems. Staff offer support in using local facilities, drop-in centres and other activities as well as working closely with other agencies including psychiatric services - often a key element in maintaining the progress that clients have made.
Supported living services for people with mental health needs are also available.
A Befriending Service in North Kirklees provides one to one support for people who are in the main registered on enhanced Care Programme Approach. Kirklees also has a Carers Breaks Service that supports both clients and their carers.
In Sheffield, the South East Community Support Service provides practical, emotional and social support to individuals and their carers complementing the role of the community mental health team and other organisations working in the area. The service aims to enable people to live independently by offering regular, planned practical support.
St. Anne’s has more than 30 years’ experience of providing community based mental health services in Leeds (view leaflet). We offer 42 single tenancies within a range of staff supported accommodation. We accommodate people who have serious and enduring mental health problems and who are either homeless or unsuitably housed. Our aim is to create a secure environment which respects personal privacy and promotes recovery, independence and abilities.
Clients are fully involved in the development and ongoing review of their individual Support Plan and are supported to take up leisure, educational and employment opportunities. Support is outcome focussed and person centred. The Mental Health Recovery Star is a central part of the support planning process. We work closely with both statutory and voluntary sector agencies to provide integrated support to individual clients. Clients have diverse backgrounds and needs; our aim is to work as flexibly as possible to meet these. There are four shared houses, with varying levels of support.
