Support in your home options
There are a range of options available within Eden District for people who need help and support to live independently. Some of these services provide long term support and some are short term for up to two years.
Supported housing is specialist accommodation for people with support needs. Some schemes provide 24 hour staff cover whilst others have staff on site during the day. There are schemes for people with different needs including:
- Young people aged 16-25
- People with mental health problems
- Elderly people through sheltered housing
If you think you need specialist supported accommodation, you can contact the Housing Options service at Eden Housing Association who will be able to discuss your requirements and make a referral if appropriate.

Supporting people is a Government funding programme that pays for some housing related support services including sheltered housing, supported housing and floating support. In Cumbria, the funding is administered by the Supporting People Team based at the County Council.
