Housing Support

Support for tenantsIf you are a tenant or a home owner, we can help you stay in your home and run it properly. We can also offer mediation for certain tenants.

All sorts of things can cause problems with your tenancy, including:

  • Trouble with your neighbours
  • Understanding your tenancy agreement
  • Managing money
  • Keeping your living space safe
  • Claiming benefits
  • Organising your day

You may find it hard to deal with letters and phone calls and we can help you with that.

We can also help support you through difficult times, help you build your confidence and help you learn to live independently.

We call this service Floating Support, and its aim is to help people like you stay in your home and avoid being made homeless.
