We believe everyone has the right to a safe and comfortable home that they can call their own.
Our Housing Service
At Response, we know the importance of housing to support recovery.
Our housing services are based across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, and the South West of England.
We provide a mixture of both shared and self-contained, single person accommodation to support people back into the community. We carry out thorough assessments with each client at the start of their journey with Response to ensure they are matched to an appropriate property as this will depend on their level of support need. Every resident living in our property will be provided with a tailored support package
We currently operate over 190 houses and flats, housing upwards of 550 clients. Our portfolio is mixed and consists of both properties owned by Response as well as properties leased through housing associations and our Private Landlord Scheme. All of our properties meet the Decent Home Standard and are HMO Licensed where necessary.
What is our Mission?
- Assisting people with mental health and complex needs to transition from hospital provision into the community.
- Supporting people to work towards independent living.
- Giving people a safe and stable environment to support their recovery.
How we support with income
The Income Team is expanding its services to include affordability assessments and welfare benefit awareness. This will ensure that we can support our residents through the cost of living crisis by supporting them to maximise their income.
We are introducing a new housing and income management system which will include a customer portal, which will be implemented by early 2024. This portal will allow each resident to access their own account from their phone or personal device. Having access to their own accounts is a vital way of empowering the people we support with managing their own finances.
Community housing with floating support
This accommodation is not staffed, and residents are responsible for managing their own daily activities and needs. However, Support workers will visit our dispersed houses regularly to assess the residents' well-being and provide recovery focussed support and assistance as needed. The goal of this program is to promote self-sufficiency and independence while providing support and monitoring to ensure the safety and well-being of the residents
Specialist recovery provision for women
This service provides Housing and Employment for women to reduce health inequalities, increase resilience and improve life chances. This service focuses on community living. A sense of community is vital for our mental health and combatting loneliness.
Community Housing with support from 9-5
The accommodation is staffed from 9am to 5pm from Monday to Friday, during which the residents receive the necessary care and support. However, residents are expected to be more independent and manage their own needs outside of staffed hours, specifically during weekends and evenings.
CQC Registered Care Home
A Residential Care home registered by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to provide care for Adults diagnosed with serious mental illness and complex health needs.
The Littlemore Campus
Our intensive 24-hour supported accommodation is designed for individuals with severe mental health issues and complex needs. The goal is to provide a safe and highly supportive environment for residents to live independently, while also receiving the necessary care and support around the clock.
Settled Oxfordshire (Homeless Supported Housing)
Settled Oxfordshire provides affordable and secure housing for individuals and families in need of a stable home. Our modern, spacious apartments are located in the heart of Oxfordshire, with easy access to local amenities and transport links. Our aim is to help people achieve independence and provide them with a place they can call home.
