Support and accommodation
The team comprises of 6 front line workers whose role is to provide Housing Related Support across 14 houses. The houses have allocated workers who visit the property on a regular basis but are not based on site. Their aim is to work alongside people to allow them to move on in a positive way into accommodation that suits their needs. This involves everyone having a support plan which is person lead and reviewed and updated regularly or when changes are needed. The workers will look at key areas of support with the person such as income maximisation, health and wellbeing, life skills, tenancy sustainment with the focus of allowing people to move on in a sustainable way.
