Priory Supported Living Hull & East Riding has established partnerships with housing providers in the area and we are proud of the quality and range of our accommodation schemes. We offer self-contained apartments and bungalows, shared living and completely bespoke solutions, with accommodation adapted to meet individual needs.
Our tenants’ homes are comfortable and modern, with some of these having assistive technology services incorporated into the buildings to maximise independence for residents. Services are located within communities, so our residents have easy access to amenities and transport links.
By understanding each person’s needs and aspirations, we can agree together the type of accommodation and locations that might work best for them.

To gain an insight into our services, the way we work and the outcomes you can expect, please take a look at some of our recent success stories:
Robert* has bipolar disorder and had a long-standing gambling addiction when he moved into one of Priory Supported Living Hull & East Riding’s supported living flats. He would not always take his medication and when this happened, Robert could present with behaviours that may challenge, he became dangerous to himself and would sometimes abscond.
At Priory Supported Living Hull & East Riding, the team place a strong emphasis on listening to and supporting each resident to achieve their goals, realise their dreams and lead a more fulfilling life. Robert’s gambling addiction had reached a point where he was unable to manage his finances. It was significantly affecting his wellbeing and he was unable to live his life as he wanted to.
Providing person-centred support and Achieving positive outcomes
The specialist team at Priory Supported Living Hull & East Riding prioritised working with Robert to create a person-centred care plan to manage his money. Once Robert no longer had to worry about his finances, his life started to change. He was able to buy food when he needed to and to pay his bills. His confidence and self-esteem improved dramatically.
Achieving positive outcomes
With staff support, Robert has begun to eat a more healthy diet and to exercise regularly, which has benefitted his physical and mental health. His medication has been adjusted at his request and he no longer refuses to take this.
Robert is volunteering at a homeless charity and is also attending church. He has begun a relationship, as well as reconnecting with his family. Robert is now looking forward to his future and has plans to move into the community and continue living a fulfilled life of greater independence.
