The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) is pleased to announce details of its latest community supported living project for adults with acquired brain injury, in Blackpool, Lancashire. Working in partnership with BEST Housing Association, BIRT will run this new community living project offering accommodation, and individually tailored support packages of care.

Situated only a mile from Blackpool promenade, this four bedroom detached bungalow is close to public transport links, local shops, amenities and leisure and recreational facilities.

The people we support will have their own bedroom, and share communal living areas including a kitchen, 2 lounges, conservatory, bathroom and wc, and extensive gardens and patio. Service users will be tenants of BEST Housing Association..

BIRT’s trained staff team will support service users to develop a person centred support plan which embraces their lifestyle choices and ensures their individual support needs are met. BIRT will deliver 24 hour support (with sleep ins), and service users will have additional support to meet their needs. Service users will be supported to manage their personal income to purchase food, clothing, access leisure activities, etc.
