Care and support
Our subsidiary LinkLiving provides care and support services to vulnerable adults and young people.
Its services are usually provided in the home to support each individual's journey towards health, wellbeing and independence. They work with people living in:
- temporary accommodation
- housing association and council tenancies
- accommodation with support
- residential care
- privately rented property
- owner-occupied property
The people it supports have a wide range of reasons for needing support, including mental health issues, homelessness, learning difficulties, physical disabilities, and vulnerabilities associated with older age.
