Northern - Supported Living

About us

Our Northern Supported Living Services enable adults with special care needs, learning disabilities, physical disabilities and mental health issues to live in their own home with the support they need to do so.

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to live independently and to make their own choices and decisions about their lives. In our supported living services, we offer support to develop life skills to assist independent living, learning and working.

Supporting people with all aspects of living independently:

Living Skills including cooking, cleaning, washing, ironing, gardening, rights and responsibilities.

Community Living including finding out about services near their home, including day services, accessing social and community activities.

Money including paying bills, budgeting and saving, claiming and collecting benefits.

Housing, helping people to understand their tenancy, what their rights are and health and safety.

Personal care can also be provided, which is assessed on an individual basis.


Currently accommodation is provided for tenants in houses and bungalows in Scorton, Leyburn and Billingham. Each tenant has their own tenancy agreement and own room, which typically has en-suite facilities. Tenants are encouraged to bring with them their personal belongings, and their bedrooms are decorated to their own personal choice. There are comfortable well furnished communal areas and pleasant gardens. Visitors are welcome at any time.
