The Fallowfield Project
Supported living for adults with a range of complex needs
2020 & 2022 CQC overall rated: Outstanding
Fallowfield is a 24-hour supported living centre, providing male and female residential services for adults with learning disabilities and or mental health needs. We are currently registered to provide support for 20 people who may be informal or subject to certain conditions under the Mental Health Act 1983.
We also work to foster an open and inclusive environment to help build self-confidence and promote self-worth. As well as one-to-one meetings, group forums and staff-led workshops on topics such as human rights, external speakers are also encouraged to share their experiences. For example, a former Fallowfield tenant runs an LGBTQ+ awareness session.

Designed to encourage independent living within a supported environment, the accommodation and communal areas are spread across three individual houses – one male, one female, and one mixed. All are within a two-minute walk of each other to encourage a sense of community, and all three houses have large gardens with space to grow plants and vegetables.
Each tenant has their own front door key and private bedroom which they are encouraged to decorate, and during our recent refurbishment, tenants had a say in the decor of the shared kitchens and living spaces to help it feel more like home.
Staff are on hand 24 hours a day.
Before a new tenant moves into the service, a bespoke, individualised transition plan would be created to ensure the move-in process is as stress-free as possible. On entering a tenancy placement, each new tenant is welcomed by the ‘house family’.
A welcome pack is provided to help reduce some of the inevitable anxieties of living semi-independently, which might typically include tea bags, coffee, milk, sugar, and tinned foods. As well as access to our whole team, each tenant is assigned a key worker to help them develop their own personalised support plan.
Day-to-day, we are on hand to help tenants develop their skills and reach their goals.
This might include shopping and domestic tasks, understanding paperwork and legal correspondence, budgeting and claiming appropriate benefits, assisting with opportunities for employment or voluntary work, accessing education and leisure services, and registering for GP and dentist services.
A Human Rights-based approach to person-centred care
We don’t have residents or service users at Fallowfield. The inspirational men and women in our supported living service asked to be referred to as tenants, and so that was that. This might not seem like a big deal to a lot of people. But for many of our tenants – who have spent much of their life battling the stigma of their diagnosis or the stereotypes of their past – it represents choice, independence and respect. These values are at the heart of what we do at Fallowfield. We offer a homely and supportive environment where people feel respected as individuals – empowered to develop their skills, to live more independently, and to integrate safely back into the community.
