Sheffield City Council is establishing an Enhanced Supported Living Framework for people over 16 years old with learning disabilities and/or autism, who display behaviour that significantly challenges, including those with a mental health condition. People supported by Providers on this Framework may have complex histories, including ‘forensic’ and/or offending histories.

Services are designed to support individuals who are currently in hospital, residential care home, residential colleges, in their community, and in out of city residential placements with the wish to return to Sheffield.

These are individuals who may:
• Display behaviours that challenge where the frequency and intensity requires highly skilled intervention from support staff or carers.
• Pose substantial current risks to themselves or others. Past risks may have resulted in considerable physical or sexual harm and for example have resulted in hospitalisation of the individuals or others.
• Have a history of offending requiring skilled support to mitigate risk associated behaviours.
• Have experienced multiple placement breakdowns in the community and deemed by social care to require specialist provision.
• Have spent a long time in a hospital inpatient setting and require skilled support to prevent further hospital admissions.
