Tuntum has recently won a tender for the provision of mental health services at the soon to be re-modelled Old Vicarage. This will result in new staffing opportunities and the development of new skills with the organisation.
In December 2019, the Tuntum Board approved a strategy for the provision of mental health services to our tenants and the community.
Currently the Old Vicarage provides accommodation for adults with support needs. There are seven self-contained flats with a bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and living room. Each resident will be allocated a support worker to offer emotional support, help with applying for benefits, and encourage service users to maximise their independence and achieve a better quality of life. They will also be receiving support to help them maintain and develop independent living skills including food preparation and attending to personal care as well as supporting integration in the local community and promoting opportunities for educational, employment and social activities.
