Our Mission

Morning rise has been established since around 1985, the service began from humble beginnings but has continued with the vision that it first inspired to become,

The vision to provide a homely environment for people with severe and often enduring mental ill health a place to feel safe and secure as part of the community. Today the vision has developed into Morning rise supported housing limited and jointly with Derbyshire accommodation and support team, still provide a housing related support service that often supports those with complex needs whom often would have residential care as an alternative.

The service provides higher level support and includes services such as the provision of meals which can support with dietary needs such as diabetes ensuring that both mental health and physical health are closely supported and providing service users with laundry services.

The vision is to ensure that each person is treated with dignity respect and as an individual and support plans are devised person centred looking at a holistic approach to needs, we are often told that our service provides unique qualities by the added extras than can add to the wellbeing of those whom we support through initiative of the support plan process.

Many service users have added to the ethos and by working closely with them on each person’s individual choices values beliefs likes and dislikes, over time the service has adapted for the service user and the key point is that it is not if a person fits our service it is how the service can adapt to meet the service user.
