About this service
West Street has been completely redeveloped and refurbished to a high standard. It is a supported living service, which has the capacity to support 6 individuals. There are 2 two-bedroom flats and 2 single self-contained flats. All the flats have a separate bedroom, bathroom and spacious open plan kitchen and lounge area. There is a communal patio and wooden gazebo in which all individuals share and often have communal BBQ’s. The service is in the town centre of Wisbech, close to a swimming pool, cinemas and various parks. West Street is also close to the bus station, which has regular links to King’s Lynn and Peterborough.
What we offer
West Street has a philosophy of person-centred support, giving choice, independence and encouragement. We enable service users to develop and maintain skills to give them the freedom to be as independent as possible, to reach their potential and realise their dreams. We will support new opportunities for achievement with informed choices and managed risks so that there is a continuous path of progress within the community.
We support people to attend college, find supported employment and take part in other meaningful daytime activities so they can develop and maintain new skills in a friendly and supportive environment. We ensure that all health needs are met in full with access to local practitioners and provide an environment that is safe but ensures that tenants have autonomy over their lives. In addition we encourage people to participate in a full range of social activities and to acquire, where necessary, the appropriate social skills and behaviours. We seek people’s views through meetings and other appropriate means.
