Pathwaze supported living accommodation primarily targets at risk adults between the ages of 18-45 years old.
Pathwaze was set up in February 2016 with the vision of transforming lives and empowering individuals who feel isolated from society, helping them to re-engage and become effective members.
We work in partnership with our service users to encourage and assist the choices they make by empowering them to find the right path for their lives. The level of assistance given to each service user is agreed upon from the onset and we understand that each service user's level of support will vary dependent on their need. Once the need is established we form a partnership and an agreement is signed between the service user and Pathwaze.
All our current properties are based in the South of London

Aim for Service Users
- To enable our service users to maintain independent living and to increase self-esteem through empowering them to seek training or employment which would result in community inclusion.
- To offer good housing standards so that our service users have homes that provide secure, safe and comfortable environments.
- To empower service users to improve general lifestyle and wellbeing.
- To provide step by step support to enable and develop new skills through our dynamic holistic approach.
- To value and respect the service user.
- To assist service users in breaking down barriers that restricts them from participating and living within the community effectively.
- To tackle discrimination and ensure equality of opportunity is achieved in all aspects of our work; providing support, guidance and education to our clients and other agencies.
- To manage our resources in a cost-effective way whilst maximising the quality and standard of our services.
- To achieve measurable success in enabling people to make the changes that are required to achieve stable lives
- To work with a range of stakeholders, including service users and other agencies to ensure that we continually evaluate, reflect and improve our services.
- To represent the needs, rights, aspirations and experiences of service users who require supported housing and to promote the ways in which these can be met, including influencing policy at local and national levels.
Living in our supported housing properties allows our service users to have a space they can call their own. It is a space where they feel safe and are assured by the fact that care and extra support is close by and easily accessible when they require it.
All our accommodation is semi-independent and are visited by outreach staff between the hours of 8am-9pm seven days a week to ensure the safeguarding of our service users.
Every effort is made to create a warm and homely environment in all our properties.
We strongly believe that supported housing, need not look and feel institutional.
All tenants are encouraged to personalise their rooms by gradually buying items which they will take with them when they move on. We want them to feel at home.
All employees have undergone training to meet the diverse demands of our service users. They have been trained to deal with challenging behaviours and complex needs. Some of the areas of training include substance abuse, counselling and mental health training. Throughout the year, employees attend a wide range of training and personal development courses to equip them to work effectively and professionally with our service users. This also ensures that we reinforce our good practices and are also up to date with policies and methods of working with the vulnerable. Safeguarding both our staff and service users hold strong value and high importance to the way we work.
