Living Independently

Supported living enables you to live independently in a home of your own in Suffolk.

Supported Living for People with Learning Disabilities in Suffolk
We offer supported living across Suffolk for people with learning disabilities and complex needs. Our services are tailored to meet the needs of the individual, which will give you the freedom to live independently whilst still being able to receive our support. 

Typically, housing support is provided with a group of tenants living together but it is also available on an individual basis in a single occupancy property. Our goal is to foster independence and build confidence through supported living services for people with learning disabilities.

We work very hard to find the right properties and, where accommodation is shared, to ensure the compatibility of tenants living together. Contact us today to learn more about our independent living services offered throughout Suffolk.

Here are some letters that we have received regarding helping individuals to live independently:

We are absolutely delighted with our family members new home, as is he, the staff are caring, kind and thoughtful. He is encouraged to do things for himself and it does seem to be working.

He enjoys a healthy diet – lots of fresh veg, a variety of foods again which he enjoys. It is very important for us to know that our son is safe and happy in his new home environment.

Thank you Leading Lives.


Dear Leading Lives,

I am a senior mental health practitioner for the Waveney area. I just wanted to thank you for the service that you have supplied for 2 of my patients both with a severe complex mental health illness. Your service has completely transformed their lives from facing living a life in residential settings to living in the community practically with minimal support now.

Again a massive sincere thank you.



Now that R has moved out of xxx Road, we would like to thank you for all you have done to provide a secure and comfortable home for her. R has enjoyed the time she has spent at xxx Road, and we have been impressed by the high standards of care provided by you and your team of carers. Thank you for all you have done for R, and she will miss hearing you say ‘I’m chuffed’!.

We would also like to thank the carers who have looked after R and the other residents. Would it be possible for you to pass on our thanks and to mention how much we– and of course R – appreciate the excellent care that has been provided. We are sure R would be extremely pleased if some of the carers are able to make occasional contact with her in the future.

Thanks again.
