The Cedar Foundation is a 'Supporting People' accredited service provider and we deliver Housing Related Support Services across a number of schemes. In some instances housing support is delivered in conjunction with care (see 'Supported Living'), however, at the schemes included within this category, only housing related support is provided.

The Cedar Foundation housing related support service aims to provide adults who have disabilities with appropriate support in their own homes, which enables client choice and participation. This contributes to independence in maintaining tenancies, good budgeting, enhanced self-esteem, and living full and valued lives; and support is provided within 10 designated apartments in Ulidia House.

The service does not provide personal care or emergency cover; and housing related support is offered for 5 hours per week, Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm.

  • Benefits advice and information
