Housing related support

A wide range of vulnerable people receive housing related support funded services, including:

  • 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

The types of services available are:

  • the handy van service
  • crisis services
  • assistive equipment and home adaptations
  • technology enabled care – community alarms
  • floating support - support that can be delivered to service users living in any type of home - private, rented or local housing authority home
  • accommodation based supported housing - for people who need temporary accommodation to enable them to get the appropriate level of support

The support available can consist of:

  • setting up and managing your home
  • keeping your home safe

  • managing your money or debts and arrears
  • access to training or employment
