Partnership working

We work with a number of specialist agencies offering individual support and advice for our customers:


Leeway is a specialist domestic abuse charity based in Norfolk and Suffolk. It supports adults, children and young people. We manage 2 refuges in Norfolk with Leeway for women escaping domestic violence.

Leeway helps the women work through complex issues - rebuilding their self-esteem. In 2010/11 we supported around 80 women and 100 children.

Our other key partner provides housing support to tenants at Devonshire Place. 20 people with enduring mental ill-health difficulties live independently in self-contained accommodation. Professional on-call support is available 24 hours a day.

Our housing operations team works closely with staff at Julian Support to ensure that the service meets customers' needs.

This organisation supports vulnerable adults to regain or maintain independence.  We work in partnership with them at our housing scheme for people with severe and enduring mental health issues in Great Yarmouth.  Cotman own the building and provide the landlord services and Stonham provide the support service.


This is a charity which benefits people with learning difficulties.  We work in partnership with them at our scheme in Norwich.  This provides long term accommodation with support for six adults with learning difficulties.
