Octavia Court is a high support accommodation scheme in the Huyton area of Knowsley. It has two elements: the 5 person emergency accommodation unit; and 17 high support flats.
These 17 flats are within the same scheme as the emergency accommodation unit and so they also benefit from a high level of physical security, full CCTV coverage and 24 hour staffing. To be eligible for this scheme, people must be aged between 16 and 25 and be homeless, badly housed or unable to remain in their accommodation as a result of harassment or abuse.
Although people can remain within this scheme for up to two years, the aim of the service is to help people to achieve independence and to move on within that time.
The support staff are on site during daytime hours seven days a week and, overnight, the scheme’s security and concierge service is overseen by security personnel. External and internal CCTV cameras are monitored on site.
