Our Story

Who we are

The charity, Zetetick Housing, was formed as a result of a shortage of organisations that were flexible or willing to support people with a learning disability who wished to find a tenancy home under the supported living model of care.

Our story began in 2007.

Zetetick Housing specialise in exempt housing provision under the specified accommodation clause of the housing legislation.  Zetetick facilitate best practice in supported living, supporting vulnerable adults with disabilities, learning difficulties, autism and mental health issues.

Zetetick Housing Ltd was incorporated (Company House Registration No: 6082488) on the 5th February 2007 and achieved registered charitable status (Charities Commission Registration No: 1118922) on 24th April 2007.

Change for the better

Since the formation of the Charity in April 2007 we have seen the lives of many tenants change for the better – significantly so. It brings everyone at this unique housing charity great pleasure to have played our part in bringing independence and inclusion to people who have so much to gain from living within our communities.

Flexibility

We specialise in seeking properties from the open private rental market. This allows us total flexibility to source properties that meet the specific needs of our tenants. These can range from bungalows to high-rise flats, subject to referral information and market availability.

Exempt provison of speciifed housing

We offer the provision of housing that is exempt from financial restriction under the specified housing section of the act, providing over and above the normal tenancy providing payment of utilities alongside hard and soft home furnishings and white goods for our tenants, because we don’t just provide housing we provide homes to people with learning difficulties, associated disabilities, autism and mental health issues.

To Support others, We need Your Support

Supported living has opened up access to a much wider range of housing options for people with a learning disability, including ‘general needs’ social housing and even home-ownership.

Although it is too early to make an overall judgement about the relative cost of supported living there is evidence that this is not unmanageable; for some individuals, the cost of their housing and support arrangements has actually been lower than the residential care they were previously using.
