What We Do

MerseySpring Community housing is more than just a house or somewhere to live; it is a home, a place of safety and security, a healthy living environment where people can grow, thrive, discover and become responsible productive members of our local communities.

MerseySpring Community Support Services provide support tailored to the individual needs of each of our service users/members. This includes support from your own advocate, life coach/care coordinator, joint up working with local health and social care providers, as well as the wrap around support of our dedicated staff team and volunteers. Crucially, you also have the support of your peers, who are ‘People with lived experience’. Those who live in our community houses and engage in ourcommunity groups achieve a sense of pride, purpose, connection, responsibility, and accountability simply by being active members of both the local recovery community and wider community activities that are available.

Who We Are

Mersey Spring is a community interest company, it was set up to help people who need support to find stability and establish a healthier lifestyle.Mersey Spring Housing & Community Services are staffed by people who have had direct experience of dealing with and/or overcoming addictions and offending.

We are passionate about Recovery and supporting you to make a difference in your life. We believe in independence, social justice, self-determination and empower people to make positive, healthier, meaningful, sustainable changes in their lives.We operate on a zero tolerance policy towards substance misuse and offending. People who live in our housing make a commitment to abstaining from all mind and mood-altering substances, except those prescribed by treatment providers and/or the resident’s GPs.


Mersey Spring Housing & Community Services aims to develop quality standard Community Housing and support services across Merseyside and Cheshire. We have a simple promise that ‘if it isn’t good enough for us, then it isn’t good enough for you’ and with that in mind we promise that all of our houses are decorated and fully furnished to a very high standard. People who live in our houses sign up to a programme of activities which includes any of the following: mutual aid, structured day care, one to one sessions and/or group work activity and a commitment to meaningful activities or voluntary work. This does not mean that people have to attend all of these options, but they do have to attend at least some and stay active.We operate on a floating support model, so although staff are not on-site 24/7, we are on call and available to any of our properties at all times. All of our houses are 3 or 4 bed properties with shared facilities (lounge, kitchen and bathroom) but residents have their own bedrooms.
