From Hospital to Their Own Home: Complex Needs Community Supported Living in Greater Manchester

Introducing a New Service, Working Alongside People With Complex Needs and Supporting Them Back Into the Greater Manchester Community

We are pleased to introduce a specialist new service which will help long-term hospitalised patients with complex needs to transfer to community supported accommodation. The service will provide adults who would otherwise remain in hospital with their own accommodation and bespoke care and support.

Director of Care and Development for Great Britain and Isle of Man, Richard Broughton, says providing this service will require dedicated high-quality care, high staffing levels and sensitively modified interiors.

“Our aim is to create the best possible opportunity for people with complex needs to flourish and to enjoy fulfilled lives.”


Praxis Care has been providing this specialist care elsewhere for decades and this will be the first time such a service is made available in the Greater Manchester area.

“At this stage, we are assessing the demand for this service in Greater Manchester so we can begin preparations to acquire suitable properties and engage and train staff,” he says. “Once we have a clear understanding of exactly what are the needs and requirements of each individual, we will then work alongside them and those who care for and support them to make a home, build a service team, support a transition process from their existing placement and start on the journey to community living, choice and independence.”

“We are tremendously excited about the opportunity to bring our experience and approach to Greater Manchester and to empowering lives that are valued, meaningful and inclusive, regardless of the complexity of need, every day.”

We have been active in Greater Manchester since 2006 and successfully operate a residential site for 15 people with mental ill health in Plasden Court in Manchester.
