Move on support

KeyRing have a successful rate of move on and reduction in support.

Support should not be the key focus of people’s lives. KeyRing move you through support services towards independence.

Move on from intensive support

KeyRing move on support is great if you want to move from more intensive types of support such as supported living accommodation. Move on support helps you plan your move to community-based support. 

KeyRing support includes:

  • Support to prepare for a move: mentally and practically
  • Help to choose and bid on or purchase your new home
  • Support with moving, including getting furniture, removal companies etc
  • Support with budgeting and income maximisation
  • Support to build connections in your community
  • Support from people who have been through the same experience
  • Ongoing support
  • Housing related support

People who are connected require less paid for support. Their wellbeing increases both physically and mentally. 

KeyRing work with other providers to review existing packages of support. 

KeyRing challenges you to do more things for yourself through practice, encouragement and peer support (support from other Members). You may have been told that you cannot do certain things, we look at ways that you can.

Move on from parents/carers

Living with a parent or carer is great but at some point you may decide that you want to make a move. Many of our families actually tell us that they get on better when they are not living together.

We can also help you and your family think about what will happen when they are unwell. Many parents/carers worry about what will happen if they can’t look after you anymore. We help you chat through what you want from your life and support you to make it happen.

Our support includes:

  • Support to prepare for a move: mentally and practically
  • Support to talk with your family and think about options
  • Assistance to choose and bid on or purchase your new home
  • Support with the move, including getting furniture, removal companies etc
  • Support with budgeting and income maximisation
  • Support to build connections in your community
  • Support to connect with other Members (people we support)
  • Ongoing tenancy related support
  • Housing related support

Alana*

Alana had been in supported living for 13 years and wanted to live independently.

Alana wanted to move from supported living. We supported her to bid on properties and visit when an offer was made, and helped her to secure a decorating grant. We also helped her to plan the move so that she could do it gradually and be fully involved in getting her flat ready. At first Alana received 40 hours outreach support in addition to support from KeyRing. This included support with:

  • setting up utilities and payments
  • setting an alarm system
  • budgeting
  • managing her health
  • looking after her flat
  • letters
  • being part of KeyRing and meeting other Members (people we support)
  • planning a holiday

Now, Alana only has KeyRing support and she doesn’t need us for much. She looks after her flat and has started a savings account. She loves to travel and has even been on holiday by herself.
