Home Recovery Community Services:
Riverside Gardens

Sandiacre Skills and Enablement Centre

Based at Riverside Gardens, our Supported Living Centre at Sandiacre, Aspire’s Skills & Enablement Facility provides a much-needed service for those with mental illness, living with support in the local community.

Here, service users receive ongoing tailored training, aimed at developing and maintaining basic living and social skills, whilst minimising risk of relapse of their illness. This facilitates successful community living and individual autonomy, whilst reducing potential for hospital admissions, saving healthcare and social funding costs.

The facility is located on the same site, but is separate from the Supported Living accommodation. This means:
  • Privacy is assured for service users
  • Distinction between residential and skills training facilities, moving away from institutional setting
  • Staff do not need to access service users’ residence, unless specially required. Thus boundaries are maintained in resident-staff relationships.
  • Local meeting point for Supported Living residents to enjoy social and recreational activities away from the residential building
