St Maur provides person-centred support for people recovering from difficulties with their mental health from a seven-roomed house just outside Newton Abbot town centre.
The staff team are focussed on working with people to establish their unique recovery journey, working with people to identify and achieve ways of getting to where they want to be in life.
St Maur has a community feel, with residents, staff and volunteers all working towards promoting and improving the wellbeing of others around them.
Staff contribute towards the community, ensuring that people who are staying at St Maur or visiting for support are always given the opportunity to be as involved, or alternatively, have the space that they might need.
The staff team are a mix of qualified support workers who all bring a diverse range of skills, interests and experience.
The house is staffed around the clock, which means there will always be someone to talk to. Afternoons and evenings tend to be busier times of day, but staff will always make sure they spend time with people when they need to talk and need support.
The relationships that are built up within the community at St Maur are key to how people progress with their recovery. These relationships are based on respect, trust and a shared understanding of how recovery is taking place for each person. We work with people towards establishing or maintaining a feeling of comfort and safety both within St Maur and the wider community.
St Maur works closely together with a number of other organisations. The aim is to use the skills of the right people (who may be external to CCT) tor provide the best support for each person.
