Ambient Wins Contract to Provide ‘Support at Home’ Mental Health Service in Bromley

National charity, Ambient Support, has won the tender to provide ‘Support At Home’ in the London Borough of Bromley, a provision for adult mental health recovery and rehabilitation support.

 

The contract commences in October 2024 for an initial period of five years and is funded 50/50 between the council and the Integrated Care Board (ICB).

 

‘Support at Home’ is an accommodation-based and floating support model helping people maintain independence in their own home, enabling them to move away from reliance on hospitals and residential care support. Independence and wellbeing are at the forefront of the service which looks to integrate recovery and rehabilitation pathways, supporting people to move into more independent settings.

 

Jane Homer, Head of Business Development at Ambient, says:

“This new joint mental health recovery and rehabilitation ‘Support at Home’ service with the London Borough of Bromley is a key priority for the borough’s mental health and wellbeing strategy. Many of the people using current services have mental health challenges including depression, schizophrenia and bipolar and this provision is a total transformation of the current model and will allow and facilitate move on and step-down to lower support services.”

 

Bromley is the largest borough in London and approximately 16% of people in Bromley have a recognised mental health need. ‘Support at Home’ will create a single support and housing model across the borough and has been developed in direct consultation and engagement with both mental health professionals and experts by experience.

 

Naomi Atkinson, Director of Operations, says:

“This is a transformative programme and really brings services in line with best practice happening around the country. It also means that our current skilled workforce will now have further opportunities to develop and take on new roles, to deliver Bromley’s independence-focused model of support. We are delighted to have won the tender and we will be working hard in the coming months to ensure we are fully prepared for the official transformation date.”

 

Samantha Downer, Divisional Director South Services at Ambient Support, says:

“Our success in winning the tender is testament to our adaptability, flexibility and willingness to modernise and transform the way in which care and support is delivered. We are excited for the future and looking forward to working with partners, stakeholders and those we support.”
