Dear Sir/Madam,

My partners older daughter had mental problems and is currently under SLaM Purley.

We are considering Supported Housing for her as the realisation of her renting her own place working part time is difficult enough but with the added problems she has with manic episodes takes it to another level.

Strong minded and wishing to be independent we also looked at shared ownership with a large deposit but feel she is not at that stage as yet.

She is in Croydon at the moment and we really think it would be better if she was closer to us.
We wondered what the criteria is for your project and the referral system.

Kind regards

Jane

Dear Jane

Thank you for contacting us about this issue. Our 'DISH' service is accessible to residents of Bexley only at this time.

To be eligible, individuals need to be resident in the Borough, registered with a Bexley GP, and under the care of one of the Bexley Community Mental Health Teams (CMHTs).

It is the CMHT that ordinarily instigates a DISH referral if such intensive support is needed.

I hope that this information is helpful.

Kind regards

Dr Derek Tracy
Associate Clinical Director
