Combating Homelessness, Creating Opportunities, Promoting Change

Shore House

Shore HouseShore House provides 20 units of accommodation in one large house, situated on Brighton seafront.

It offers intensive and high levels of support with staff on site 24 hours a day. The support is tailored to individual need, working with and managing varying levels of risk.

Our support is designed to address high impact social issues such as emotional health and well-being and healthy weight and nutrition as well as wider detriments which impact on health and well-being such as employment and housing.

The new tiered mental health accommodation services have been commissioned jointly by Brighton and Hove Clinical Commissioning group and Brighton and Hove Local Authority, to provide additional support within the city and model of support that strongly promotes well- being and recovery. The services will work flexibly and collaboratively to support independence, and opportunities for independent living.

Aims and objectives

Shore House roomShore House bridges the gap between care services and the community, and works pro-actively with people to achieve a positive move on in a planned way.

Each individual in the service is treated with dignity and respect in a non-stigmatised and non-judgemental manner.
