Housing support

We can arrange support services if you are already living in a council home or if you have been offered a council home and you may struggle with managing it.

Support can help you gain the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to keep and maintain your own home. It can also help to improve your health and wellbeing, ability to work and to be an active part of your community.

The support is delivered in your own home and there is no time limit on the support offered. You will be allocated a support worker who will work with you to achieve your goals whilst promoting your independence and self-reliance.

We also work with other professionals and voluntary agencies to secure the best outcomes for you.

We can offer support with:

  • Finances, budgeting, applying for benefits, maximising income, ensuring priority bills are paid
  • Communication, dealing with mail, completing forms etc.
  • Setting up utilities
  • Attending appointments
  • Preventing social isolation
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Making a positive contribution in your community.

How to get help

You can refer yourself and you will be assessed by the service most appropriate to your needs.
