Independent living support

Support offered by the independent living prevention team

This service (formerly prevention housing support) supports a range of people who have:

  • little or no experience of living independently
  • a history of homelessness
  • or experiencing tenancy breakdown

The flexible support service will work with you to meet your specific support needs, whether in your home or through our community drop in services we aim to support you.

Our support officers can work with those:

  • at risk of losing their homes and those who are or could become homeless
  • living in temporary accommodation
  • moving from supported housing or custody to independent living
  • needing help to increase their independence

We want to support people to remain independent and live confidently within their own home. Whether it is through:

  • budgeting
  • general support
  • signposting to other organisations
  • finding you work
  • or accessing the right benefits

It is our priority to protect the vulnerable, improve wellbeing and enable people to participate in their community and contribute to the local economy.
