Barnet Mencap have vacancies in our supported accommodation houses!
Through our Equality Housing project, we encourage our tenants to live full and active lives in our 3 shared houses across the borough. Not only do we work to improve people’s practical skills, but we also want to see our tenants develop emotionally and socially to increase their confidence and enjoy life!
We promote personal choice within all aspects of tenants’ support and their participation in the development of the service.
Many of our tenants are in full or part-time employment or have voluntary jobs, attend college or have other day activities. We encourage and facilitate our tenants to take an active part in all decision-making in Equality Housing and Barnet Mencap. We want our tenants’ views and opinions to be heard and valued.
The houses are Victorian family homes, light and spacious, and all three are well positioned close to busy high streets. With shops and transport links close by, everyday living is made easier. Each house has a garden with patio areas where tenants can enjoy BBQs or just sit outside in the sun.
Each tenant has their own room and they share a kitchen, bathrooms and lounge. Tenants spend time together and support each other, creating a real family atmosphere in each house. The lounge is often used by the tenants to watch films together or for socialising with a cup of tea.
Our committed team of Community Link Workers visit the tenants and give them support in many areas of their lives, including around shopping and cooking, finances and encouraging a social life.
