Supported living and supporting people

Supporting people

We can help vulnerable people maintain and improve their ability to live independently by, for example:

  • helping an older person stay in their own home
  • helping someone coming out of homelessness to manage their own home
  • helping someone with mental health problems to live independently

What type of help can we provide?

  • help to develop life skills such as understanding and complying with tenancies, budgeting and cooking
  • support access to services and benefits including health, social care and specialist and leisure
  • support to access education, training and employment
  • monitoring health and wellbeing

Who do we help?

  • homeless people and rough sleepers
  • people with mental health problems
  • people with learning disabilities
  • people with drug and or alcohol problems
  • victims of hate crime and domestic violence
  • ex-offenders and those at risk of offending

We also support older people and adults with a range of needs and adults in temporary accommodation provided by the Council.

The programme contributes to a thriving, healthy and inclusive community that is confident and safe by ensuring that vulnerable groups have an equal opportunity to lead a fulfilling life, and participate fully in our community and wider society.
