Our Values Are .
Safety, Empowerment, Respect, Care and Collaboration
Liver Care and Housing continue to work in partnership with Commissioners to grow and develop their offer of support and housing. Liver Care and Housing will continue to work with Adult Services and Health as we are an approved provider with Local Authorities. This provides an opportunity for our charity to grow and develop its services across the Liverpool City Region.
Our social impact .
The services we deliver at Liver Care and Housing can have a very positive impacts on people’s lives. For example, we have a service user who has been living in one of our houses for over a decade. Prior to this he was living with his parents. He has long standing mental health issues, in the past he would try to deal with his mental health issues by drinking alcohol or by using substances. This would only exacerbate his mental health problems and on many occasions, he would require hospitalisation. This would have a negative impact on his mental health and on his immediate family who would worry deeply. Each time he was admitted to hospital, treated, and then discharged he would quickly return to his unhealthy lifestyle choices.
Since residing in our supported housing he has not been readmitted to hospital and his quality of life has improved and his family now know he is safe, happy and supported.
