Progress Housing Group launches new supported living service: RWP (Reside With Progress)
Progress Housing Group is delighted to announce the launch of RWP (Reside With Progress). RWP will deliver high quality supported living accommodation for people with a learning disability and/or autistic people.
The official launch of RWP on 1 April 2022 marks the full integration of Progress Housing Group's supported living division with Reside Housing Association following Reside joining the Group on 30 September 2021.
With 4,500 supported living tenancies across the UK, RWP delivers high-quality housing to meet the needs and aspirations of people with varying support needs, primarily learning disabilities or autistic people. It is now one of the leading providers of supported living accommodation in the country.
Bernie Keenan, Progress Housing Group Deputy Chief Executive and Chief Operating Officer, RWP, said: "Following the exciting news that Reside Housing Association joined the Group last year, I am delighted to announce the launch of our new supported living provider, RWP, which will play a major part in meeting the need for safe, high-quality supported living accommodation.
"As a specialist housing provider and leader in the supported living sector, our customers are very much at the heart of RWP. We believe in choices, and we will always work with our current and future tenants to ensure that they are able to make the same housing choices that most other people have available to them, most importantly, where they live and who they live with.
"Launching RWP would not have been possible without the dedication of our colleagues and the support of our customers. Thanks to their hard work over the last year, we look forward to supporting more people to live and thrive."
Les Warren, Deputy Managing Director of RWP, said: "We were delighted that Reside Housing Association joined forces with Progress Housing Group in 2021. Today we are thrilled to announce the launch of RWP as one of the leading supported living providers in the country for people with learning disabilities and autistic people.
"We now begin our work ensuring that our tenants and their families and advocates can make positive living choices to live independently in properties they are proud to call their home."
RWP Supported Living tenant, involved tenant and member of Progress Housing Group's Scrutiny Pool, David Robinson, said: "It's exciting to see RWP launched today. I was very pleased to be asked to be involved in the process of helping to design the new branding. It will be good to see how my comments have helped with the new design."
Supported living accommodation enables people who would otherwise have very limited housing choices to live fulfilling and dignified lives in their own homes.
RWP is the property provider, and we partner with commissioners and support providers to ensure housing and support are delivered in a coordinated way.
RWP aims to deliver the best possible service for our existing and future supported living tenants and shared owners and to be the best partner for commissioners and care providers.
