About Us

Morning Rise started from humble beginnings. Years ago, Joy and her husband used to run a florists from a market stall in Derby. Joy found herself helping homeless people who tended to congregate around the market. It was clear that many of the homeless people had mental health needs.

Eventually, Joy and her husband decided that she would like to provide assistance on a more formal basis and after consultation with appropriate professionals began to accept people in need into their family home. A number of people moved in following the closure of Pastures psychiatric hospital in Derby. The family home has been extended over the years and has now evolved into Morning Rise supported housing.

Morning Rise is a Derbyshire Accommodation and Support Team Provider (DAST)

DAST provides accommodation and support services for adults experiencing mental ill health, in some cases, complex needs that are challenging to place in alternative settings other than residential care.

We currently have a maximum of 16 service users, both male and female. All residents have their own rooms and there are also shared facilities, communal areas and large gardens. There are no age restrictions to stay at Morning Rise with us.

Each person can expect to be treated in an individual manner we foster equality and diversity and ensure robust training of staff to promote independence of service users in a manner that takes a person centred approach working closely with other agencies to develop support plans.

The service is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and waking night cover is provided.
