Housing support worker

Our housing support workers have been established as part of a broader service which has the effective support of vulnerable people as its core objective.

Support and counselling

Housing support workers are part of our approach to preventing homelessness and sustaining all forms of occupation arrangement. This involves our housing support workers 'doing the right thing at the right time' to enable vulnerable residents to be appropriately supported at the earliest opportunity.

Our housing support workers will provide a dedicated 'team around the tenant' and will deliver tailored support plans to address or manage underlying issues which impact upon the residents' ability to remain in their current accommodation. Housing support workers work across all forms of tenure.

Referral to housing support workers must be linked to a high risk of potential homelessness i.e. if nothing is done there is a high risk of the occupation arrangement failing and homelessness occurring. There must be a presenting underlying vulnerability. As part of achieving their core objective, housing support workers will work alongside a range of other services. They will draw in appropriate services as part of delivering joint support plans which are tailored to the individual needs of the resident including the sustainment of the occupation arrangement.

The period of housing support worker engagement will normally be up to a maximum period of three months. 

Referrals should be made via the form below or contact centre on telephone 01895 556666 which is open Monday to Friday between 8am to 6pm.
