Commissioners

About Our Partners

Commissioners are under considerable  funding pressures that prevent them from commissioning their own properties. Consequently, they are having to work with property developers that are creating non person centred, mediocre, accommodation as they are inherently more interested in achieving their own objectives as opposed to fitting the ever changing needs of the service users and the objectives and strategies of the commissioners.  

Purpose and Objectives

Local authorities and CCGs will aim to commission sustainable projects that meet and continue to meet evolving social housing needs. The positive results that this sustainability will rely on include affordable outcomes for vulnerable people, a wider range of resilient premises that can accommodate constantly changing needs, and homes that enable supported individuals to maximise their independence and integration into their local communities. 

Working in Partnership

The way that our properties are designed means they are adaptable to changing needs, with embedded design elements to reduce triggers for any challenging behaviour. This, in turn, means that providers can reduce re-admittance to hospitals and the breakdown of placements. This approach takes into consideration the diagnosis of the client group, the behaviours and presentation with an aim to increase value for money and result in more sustainable placements.

 

Housing Associations

About Our Partners

We work with HAs that provide supported living to vulnerable people across the country. These registered providers often have to contend with erroneous SLAs and unreliable operators in order to be able to implement long-lasting supported housing solutions for individuals in need. HAs also have to contend with difficulties that arise in filling properties that they have with suitable referrals from local authorities and CCGs.

Purpose and Objectives

Housing Associations will aim to supply supported housing to meet the volume and varying nature of referrals made from an area, whilst ensuring cost-effectiveness for the local authorities and institutions that are funding it. The service needs to be delivered in a long-term viable vessel that remains sustainable in the face of evolving pressures, and results in tenants living purposeful, rewarding and, most importantly, happy lives.

Working in Partnership

Whether the property is a new build or a renovation, the supportive design elements that Oculus embed, will already meet some requirements of the client group. With those needs in mind from the onset, the premises require less personalisation and therefore less investment from the Housing Association. These properties also adapt to the changing and often, challenging client needs thus reducing the maintenance costs.

 

Care Providers

About Our Partners

We work with care providers across the United Kingdom who provide supported living services. They face a constant pressure to meet the inundation of referrals with suitable accommodation that align with their objectives. Often care providers have to settle with properties that do not promote their ethos, for a variety of reasons, thus preventing achievement of the positive outcomes they endeavour to deliver.

Purpose and Objectives

Care providers will always aim to support and encourage vulnerable people with specific needs, to increase their quality of life, independence and integration into their communities. They want to deliver high quality services that are innovative in their practices and policies, whilst prioritising individual needs. Physical and mental safety will underpin all these threads to ensure maximal success and progression

Working in Partnership

We continually spend time with care providers to understand their evolving obligations, needs, wants  and requirements to present properties that have been redeveloped to meet the general needs of the client group they provide services to. The properties are further personalised on an individual case by case basis in line with specific instruction from the care provider regarding the unique needs and triggers of the individual. 

 

Investors

About Our Partners

Social housing is a diverse and profitable sector of the housing market. Incoming resources are spent building supported living for vulnerable individuals. Investment from local authorities, CCGs and private sources all come together to drive social housing sector standards up. The availability of  various investment opportunities means that funding is not necessarily provided in the most rewarding avenues for all stakeholders.

Purpose and Objectives

Beyond the obvious understanding that investors will want a return on their capital, there are priorities that will drive investment decisions. Funding appropriate housing that meets the needs of the sector reduces the expense covered by government funding. Long-term provisions paired with providers who can be relied upon to maintain standards of care will result in sustaining a portfolio that adapts to changing needs. 

Working in Partnership

Oculus is committed to providing solutions that are cost effective, resulting in customer satisfaction and justifying the confidence that commissioners have placed in their decisions. This means that the needs of all the other various stakeholders involved are met. The focal outcome that remains is an updated and progressive standard of housing, alongside a reliable and fair return on investments.
