Independent Living

Independent Living is housing that gives you support and security without taking away your independence. We provide a range of one and two person accommodation including units built/adapted for people with disabilities, across our three sites. Each property comes with a built-in alarm system which is monitored 24 hours a day. 
Each site has a dedicated manager who will assess your need for support. It may be that you feel you do not need any support and that is fine however, it is there if you require it in the future.
As a resident, you will also have access to our Debt Management and Benefits Advisor who can provide individualised support and advice and who can help you claim Housing Benefit. The Advisor can also carry out income/benefit checks and help to maximise income by agreeing affordable repayment plans as well as support with budgeting advice and essential money management skills.

At Sir Josiah Mason Trust, we can help you settle into your new home and into the local community (Floating Support). The types of support provided include help to:

  • to manage your property/home

  • with reading and managing with your bills

  • with paying bills

  • with appointments and social activities.

  • Enabling you to remain independent in your home

  • advice and information about local services and opportunities…..

Each of our sites also has an active residents group who organise a range of regular subsidised social activities.
