The Ministry of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is seeking to procure Single Site Supported Housing (SSSH) services from a suitable provider/s to support people living at Rolleston Street, Wellington. The purpose of this document is to detail the plan for procuring this service.
Rolleston street is under construction and is expected to open for tenanting towards the end of 2023.
Single Site Supported Housing in general is a combination of affordable housing and supportive services designed to help individuals and families use stable housing as a platform for health, recovery and personal growth. It focuses on balancing three distinct components of housing, support services, and property and housing management.
Supported housing is targeted towards people with a range of support needs, including those with complex and high levels of social and health needs. Supported Housing is widely used internationally and has a strong evidence base supporting its ability to deliver the level of intensive service and permanent housing needed for people to live well and sustain their homes, especially in the face of their fluctuating need for additional support. However, we recognise that overseas models can be less successful when applied in Aotearoa New Zealand than models that are developed and designed for the Aotearoa New Zealand context
Single site supported housing is where tenancies are located within one building or a single area of land, and support services are on-site to support residents 24/7. Tenants are housed on a long-term sustainable basis, rather than temporarily, and may have low through to high needs for support.
Support services provided in SSSH can vary according to need and site, but a key factor is that they are not time-bound. Support services can be accessed for as long as tenants need, and flexibility is a built-in feature of SSSH. A tenant may voluntarily change the level and type of support services they access during their tenure, and this is not tied to their housing status within the site. Accessing support services is not a requirement for sustaining the tenancy.
