Brokerage and Re-settlement in Lambeth

The Brokerage and Re-settlement in Lambeth (BRiL) project has been set up to give people with mental health issues living in residential care in the borough the chance to move into their own flat.

The aim is to transform housing options for people in Lambeth who are ready to move out of registered care homes or hospital wards, through the purchase of 20 one-bedroom flats from the property market.

The project aims to help people move on and lead a more independent life and Thames Reach personal assistants will provide support to ensure the new tenants settle into their new home.

Funding for the flats includes a £4.2m loan from L&Q and a £520k grant from the Monday Charitable Trust.

The Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group will fund the ongoing support and assistance.

BRiL forms part of Thames Reach’s support for the Integrated Personalised Support Alliance (IPSA) which is offering a new approach to supporting people with long-term mental health problems in Lambeth.
