New services opened in 2017
20th December 2017
During 2017, EHSL has opened new services in Hertfordshire, Watford, Barnet and Enfield, offering accommodation to 17 people.
The accommodation provided includes self-contained flats dispersed within the community, a block of flats with overnight staffing, two shared houses, and a 2-person bungalow which is being adapted to meet the needs of a person coming out of residential care.
In most cases the properties have been leased from private sector landlords, although in one case the property is owned by a care provider and leased to EHSL. Rents have been approved by the local authority in each case and are paid via Housing Benefit.
