SignHealth Claridge Road
Claridge Road can consider referrals from a variety of agencies (principally Social Services or Health Authorities) anywhere within the United Kingdom. Assessments are made in collaboration and partnership with the referring agency.
Following the completion of assessments, approval of referral and the securing of funding, the new tenant is encouraged to be fully involved in every aspect of their transition to their new home. A key worker is allocated and the development of a structured package of support is initiated.

This is a Supported Living Scheme run by SignHealth. It holds residential care home status under the Car Quality Commission inspection and is based in Chorlton, South Manchester.
