Job Description

Project Details
Shore House is an innovative and dynamic service which provides accommodation and intensive support to 20 people with a range of mental health diagnoses and people experiencing the effects of complex trauma. People may also present with additional needs such as substance use, and its associated impacts on health, budgeting, and engagement.

The service works collaboratively with clients and their community mental health team to ensure their safety and wellbeing, as well as enabling them to move on to more independent accommodation within an 18-month timeframe.

Within Shore House, we are currently piloting a 2-bed service called Respite @ Shore which aims to prevent escalation of suicidal feelings and self-harm in people living in the Brighton and Hove areas, who have mental health issues and complex needs, by providing up to 7 days of respite, with 24/7 staff support. It seeks to provide an empowering and preventative service to those who may otherwise require hospital admission/use of statutory crisis mental health services.
