Mavam Supported Housing has several 24hr supported housing projects in Ipswich Stowmarket and Sudbury, with a member of staff sleeping in at night to respond to emergencies.  Many of our rooms have their own bathrooms, whilst some projects contain self-contained flats.

“We focus on the needs of the individual, not their diagnosis.”

Our Philosophy

Mavam Supported Housing believes in working with an individual’s strengths to develop daily living skills which will improve their quality of life and may give them the confidence to live independently within the community once again.

Working in a structured way, we look to develop a service user’s self-reliance, understanding and self-belief so that they may reach their goals and reclaim their autonomy.

Support

We offer a range of support packages which are based on an individual’s need.

All staff undertake a comprehensive training programme which includes: Safeguarding awareness; Positive Behaviour Support; First Aid; Person Centred Planning; Mental Health Awareness; Autism Awareness, Substance Misuse Awareness and Self-Injury Awareness.  Staff work towards attaining the Care Certificate and can study higher NVQ qualifications whilst working for the organisation.

Service user profile

We support people who have complex needs and may present with higher risk behaviours.  People who have been in hospital or other institutional care and have lost their confidence or ability to cope with everyday living.  People who have become socially isolated and would benefit from peer support as well as from professional staff.  Young people living on their own for the first time after leaving care and people who have had a cycle of homelessness due to chaotic living.
