The Moving On Up (MOUP) Project supports young people aged 16-25 with Autism and ADHD to live independently.
Residents are supported on a 1-2-1 basis by the support team who are on hand 24 hours a day. The team work closely with residents and partner agencies to support the young people to understand their condition, develop living skills and meaningful relationships, and learn to manage a tenancy.
There are four bedsits which provide the first step to independence. Residents in these are supported to develop their basic daily living skills.
There are two self-contained apartments for young people who are ready to live semi-independently. These provide an interim step between the supported bedsits and more independent accommodation within the community.
In addition, there is an emergency room which provides accommodation for young people in crisis, or those who need respite support.
There is a large and welcoming Community Hub that is used to deliver a range of activities and support including cooking, employability, budgeting, art therapy and healthy living.
From the hub, we also run an outreach service which is accessible for young people living in the community who can tap into the specialist support from the team at MOUP whilst living in their own homes. This is available to all former residents when they move on to ensure they live well in their home and community.
The homes benefit from:
- 24/7 on-site support
- Safe and stable environment for residents
- Free Wi-Fi
There is also shared facilities with lots going on:
- Community hub/lounge
- Large, shared kitchen
- A garden area for residents to enjoy
- Laundry facilities
