Service Description

Connection Support’s Step Down Housing is short-term supported housing for patients who are medically ready to be discharged from the Oxford University Hospital or Oxford Foundation Trust Hospital sites but lack suitable accommodation or a home to continue their recovery.

Key functions & activities offered

The client will spend a maximum of two weeks at a local house with a Support Worker and community medical staff.
 

During this time, their Support Worker will ensure that they are linked into the Homeless Pathway options, local housing team and outreach services whilst they complete their medical rehabilitation.
 

Other support could include:

  • help with benefit claims
  • advice on healthy living
  • advice on housing and liaison with appropriate agencies as relevant including re-connections 

Once recovery has been achieved the client will be supported around housing options as appropriate but discharge to the streets may sadly be necessary.
