Who we are...
A Bespoke Support Service - treating people as normal citizens
We are a small, local support provider in Leeds. We are the product of an exciting Bespoke Provision project - the first of its kind in Leeds in bringing social care closer to people who are on the margins of society. The overall aim of our project is to give people the resources and support to be a normal citizen in their community. People we support are either hospitalised or at risk of hospitalisation at the time of their referral to us which is in part due to their complex needs (particularly around mental health), their 'hefty reputations', and their history of previous placement breakdowns. With this in mind, we have created a service that aims to meet these needs in a bespoke way and to stick by them like glue to create stability in their lives they have never had before.
The 3 aspects of our bespoke project
We aim for people to have as much control within their lives as possible from the start, with a view to growing that control over time. Their choices, preferences and aspirations are the framework of their support we provide, and we do not compromise on these.
The first important point is that our service keeps housing and support separate. The person signs their own tenancy agreement with our partnered housing providers who are responsible for the housing needs.
We use a single occupancy model meaning the people who use our service want to live on their own. This is a bespoke scheme which means that housing providers search for property off the housing market in the community based on what is necessary for the person's needs and also on their housing preferences such as location and facilities.
Each person has their own staff team recruited around them, and each person can be as involved as they want to be in recruiting them. Recruitment is based on applicants demonstrating the values we have at MMBM, and importantly on their attributes, experiences and interests that fit well with the person being supported.
