Housing related support

We fund a housing related support service to enable vulnerable people to achieve or maintain independent living in the community. More than 24,000 people per year in Derbyshire can be supported through the funding of these services.

  • people with mental ill health
  • people with learning disabilities
  • young people (age 16 to 24) including teenage parents, care leavers and ex-offenders, people with drug or alcohol problems
  • older people (age 55 plus)
  • high risk serious offenders
