What do our Housing Services provide?

All the services apart from Denmark House provide support to enable customers to progress over a maximum period of 18 months to independent living. Every one of those customers will complete a fully documented and jointly agreed upon agreed support plan which is reviewed at least once every 6 weeks to progress towards independent living. We can provide access to a wide range of skills based activities such as cooking, cleaning and horticulture. We also provide access to advocacy support to ensure customers receive all the support they need from statutory services. In addition, we also signpost customers to other services and support them to become economically active through Employment, Education, Training or Volunteering.

When customers are ready we also assist them to secure move on accommodation.
