Adullam Homes is working in a new partnership with Sheffield City Council to provide Adullam Foundations, a dynamic service for 75 clients with mental health histories. This service will create around ten jobs in the city.
Service users will be supported in their own accommodation in a way that meets their individual needs and enables them to live as independently as possible and engage in their own local communities, while building resilience to manage their mental health issues. Anyone with a mental health need who has a housing issue, such as being at risk of homelessness, can be referred to the service.
Adullam Homes has significant experience supporting individuals with mental health problems and brings a wealth of experience to Sheffield.
Trevor Palfreyman, chief executive of Adullam Homes, said: “We are very pleased to be working with Sheffield City Council to support a significant number of people across the City to live independent and fulfilling lives.
“Our floating support services across different regions are widely acclaimed and make a tangible difference to people’s lives, enabling them to live independently and to stay well when the alternative could be long-term hospital placements.
“We are currently recruiting a team of staff to fulfil this exciting new contract and look forward to delivering an invaluable and high quality service.”
Joe Fowler, Director of Communities Commissioning, said: “We are very pleased to have appointed Adullam as our new provider of housing independence support.
“We felt that Adullam’s model and ethos fits with our aspirations to enable people to live well in their own homes and communities and achieve their goals.”
