Our carefully chosen partner agencies provide specialist support and care for customers living in our supported properties. Support specialisms include learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental illness, homelessness and domestic abuse.
We (the Partnership & Agents team) then work closely with support providers to monitor the service provided to customers. Our partners must have a proven track record in providing support and if a care service is provided the agency must be approved by Adult (Social) Services.
Radian’s supported properties are often developed for a specific client group. Some partners lease properties from us. Some have service level or management agreements (at leased schemes, customers are tenants of support providers).
