Bishops Lodge is a large well-proportioned semi-detached house that comprises nine bedrooms and is divided across 3 floors. Wellness Housing Officers will be on site Monday to Friday from 11:45 – 16:45 (exc. Bank Holidays). They will offer enhanced housing management services, e.g. tenancy sustainment, benefit applications, budgeting and payment of tenancy related bills. Staff will be able to signpost clients to other relevant agencies that do not relate to housing management and to assist them with carrying out the tasks associated with living in a communal home environment and in maintaining their tenancy.
All clients throughout QVT have telephone access to our 24hr scheme at Verdant Lane SE6 where there is staff on duty who can assist with any queries or concerns that may arise day or night and offer verbal support or if necessary, arrange for face to face contact. There is also an out-of-hours on call manager to assist and support staff and clients in times of urgency.
Bishops Lodge offers supportive ‘family style’ accommodation with an emphasis on ‘normal living’. Each member of the household has their own comfortable room with a kitchenette and an en-suite and shares the communal areas including the lounge, a well equipped kitchen and one communal toilet. There are gardens at the front and rear of the property.
Bedrooms are equipped with a single bed, bedside table, wardrobe, chest of drawers, fridge, and a microwave oven. En-suites consist of a toilet, a small wash basin and a shower.
There is a comfortable lounge on the ground floor with sofas, and an area in the conservatory that overlooks the rear garden for sitting and dining.
