Twenty Four Seven

Supported living gives you the confidence and freedom to make decisions about your life in a safe, supportive and caring environment.

Supported Living Overview

Supported living gives you the confidence and freedom to make decisions about your life in a safe, supportive and caring environment. We offer different types of modern accommodation with a range of support, to help you to take control of your life and give you the knowledge you need to make the right decisions.

The groups we work with are:

  • Unaccompanied Asylum seekers
  • Young people preparing for independence
  • Young people and young adults with learning disabilities, preparing for independence
  • Young parents who need support to further develop their independence and parenting skills
  • Expectant parents who need support to develop their independence skills and prepare for the birth of their child

We adapt each support package to make sure that it meets your individual needs and circumstances.

What to Expect

We have supported over 200 young people/adults to develop their independence skills. We will work with you to personalise an activity programme that can help in all aspects of your learning. These include; managing money, shopping, looking after yourself, help with relationships, help with family, and help with training or work.

We can support you 24 hours a day or an hour a day. We work with you to decide which areas need support, how much and when you need it. We genuinely want you to achieve your goals and we will do our best to support you to achieve a positive outcome.

What will happen?

You, your key-worker or your carer will visit and have a look round the properties. We will learn about you and the support you need and discuss the different accommodation and support types.

You don’t need to make an immediate decision. We encourage you to go away and think about things and discuss them with your family, friends or carers. We are happy to arrange more visits and even overnight stays so that you get a feel for how we work and what we offer before you decide to move in.

If you decide to move in, we’ll talk to you about which type of accommodation and support you require. You’ll be allocated a key-worker, who is 100% on your side and will help and guide you to achieve your goals in a supportive and nurturing environment.

Life at our Supported Living Homes

We offer a range of supported living accommodation – from shared houses to one-bedroomed flats – offering 24-7 on-site support and supported independent living. The properties are located in Penistone, Barnsley and Wombwell. Please contact us if you require help and support outside of those areas.

When you come to us to discuss your needs, we’ll review all of the accommodation types and look at which one offers you the support that you need to achieve your goals.

We want you to be able to live as independently as possible and to develop the confidence and ability to live life to the full. That includes enjoying good health and having and developing happy relationships with the people around you. Our practical workshops will help you to develop the skills you need to live an active and independent life, within a fun, caring and supportive environment.

Everyone is treated with dignity and respect whatever their ability, sexual orientation, gender, age, physical appearance, religion, race or culture.

Who will be looking after me?

The service is managed by Paul Hawksworth and deputy manager Julie Morris. Between them, Paul and Julie have been part of the Twenty Four-Seven team for 25 years!

Sue Yatgin is the ‘Head of Children’s Services’ and a fully qualified Social Worker. Sue has 30 years of experience working in the social care setting and has been with Twenty Four-Seven since 2005.

Our team of ten caring and supportive staff will also work with you on a day-to-day basis. We know how important it is that you get to know the people around you and have a friendly face to turn to, so we never use any agency staff – you’ll always work with someone you know.
