Bank House is newly renovated townhouse in the heart of Bideford offering medium level supported living accommodation from Lycette Care, where support is provided according to the individual needs of the service user. It is a 4 person shared house. We hold a contract with Devon County Council for Supporting People, but Service Users from other LAs need to ensure there is a funding provision in place. Bank House is also used through the Alternative to Care scheme.
Staff are there to support, encourage and develop the skills of the service users in a safe environment, with the aim of eventually finding appropriate move on accommodation.
Staff are trained in the recovery method and we follow a “Tenancy Training” program that is a certifiable method of working towards and demonstrating readiness for move on.
