Mencap - Leicestershire (Supported Living and Homes)


Main information

Type of service: Residential services, Supported living schemes

Supported living service providing support and housing. Mencap provides housing support that meets people's specific needs. We recognise that while some people like to live on their own, others like to live with other people. With this in mind we help people to rent or buy their own homes. Should a person wish to live in a shared living arrangement, we will also ensure their needs, and the needs of anybody else we may support are catered for individually. Services currently are in Leicester, Loughborough, Market Harborough and Melton Mowbray.

Golden Lane Housing (GLH) works in partnership with Mencap. GLH was established as an independent charity by Mencap in 1998 to help tackle any problems people with a learning disability face when it comes to being able to make choices about where, with who, and how they wish to live their lives. GLH provides high quality homes that suit the needs of individuals with a learning disability, from individual and shared housing to supported living and respite accommodation.
