DescriptionSupported accommodation provides individuals with complex mental health difficulties the opportunity to maintain a tenancy with different levels of staff support provided to develop and maintain living skills and engage in social and work activities. Physical features of the place people live, the support they receive from staff and the individuals needs all have the potential to impact on their ability to engage in activities that enable then to have increasing independence within the community. The study will investigate the relationship between the physical and social features of supported accommodation environments and whether this facilitates or inhibits people with complex mental health difficulties' participation in everyday life, relationships, pursuing interests and work. The study will also consider whether people's needs have an effect on the relationship between the environment and their participation. The study will analyse data collected using measures of clients' levels of participation, features of the supported accommodation environment and how needs mediates this relationship. The aim is to inform ways of working with people with complex mental health difficulties in supported accommodation that increase opportunities for participation in the activities they need, want and enjoy doing.
