Accommodation and support available

Finding a place to call home

Certitude has been providing support to Londoners living with learning disabilities, autism and mental health support needs for 30 years. We believe that everybody has the right to a good life, which is why we think it’s so important that people find somewhere they really feel at home.

We have both Registered Care and Supported Living opportunities available. Like any home, each one is unique, so please take a look and get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more, including the costs involved.

Please note that the person moving in may need to be a resident of the borough the accommodation is in or nominated by social services. Please check individual listings for more details.

The support we offer

People-centred

We tailor support to each person and and work with their strengths. We listen carefully to the person we are supporting, as well as the people who know them best, to help us understand what’s important to them and what will ensure they live safe and happy lives.

Family-focused

Our Family Support team offers support to family members in the lead up to a person moving in, as well as after the move. The team provide both emotional support and practical advice, such as information on accessing benefits.

Fully trained

Our teams specialise in supporting people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health support needs. They are trained in epilepsy, dysphagia, postural care and mental health first aid.

Hannah's* story

Hannah has complex learning disabilities and always found day centre environments difficult. “We encouraged Hannah to go outside and go for a walk but were always unsuccessful,” says a family member. “It was the hardest decision for us to allow her to live independently.”

Hannah moved into a shared house managed by Certitude. Working with her family and Certitude staff, Hannah created her own person-centred support plan aimed at reducing instances of distress and improving communication.

Hannah’s confidence has grown immensely. She visits the cinema, takes part in cooking classes and enjoyed her first meal in a restaurant with her family since she was four years old. She was even able to attend her sister’s wedding.

“The staff have been great in supporting both Hannah and her family,” said a family member. “Hannah has always had a lot of potential and now she is able to flourish.”
