What We Do

We enable adults of all ages who are physically disabled or vision impaired to live independently either in their existing accommodation with the help of our Independent Living Advisor or in their own mobility apartment within one of our specialist developments with 24 hour a day, seven day a week on site support. In addition to this support our Tenancy Support Team also assist tenants from their initial assessment to moving in and beyond, if required, with setting up care packages etc. These unique facilities enable our tenants to live an independent life with the dignity of personal choice that can only come from having their own front door.

  • Our tenants

    We currently have some 360 tenants covering a very broad spectrum ranging from their early 20’s and encompassing an array of different disabilities including multiple sclerosis, Huntingdon’s Chorea, cerebral palsy, rheumatoid arthritis as well as sight related disabilities and those disabilities that come with age. We look forward to this number increasing when we have completed our next development of 30 apartments in Mill Hill East.

  • Our support services

    The support that we give is specifically designed to enable adults with physical disabilities or impaired vision to live independently. We do not run care homes and do not, therefore, offer full time care or nursing support. We do, however, ensure that support is on hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week from our resident house managers and, in addition, we have a Tenancy Support team based at head office who give extra help to tenants who need assistance with benefits, care package and other administrative issues as well as offering extra emotional support when required.

    As part of our Golden Jubilee celebrations we have launched our Independent Living Advisory service. For the first time in 50 years this takes our unparalleled expertise in enabling independent living to people living out in the wider Jewish community. In addition to advising on appropriate aids and adaptations, where the recommended aids are not affordable we may be able to fund these items.
