The Supported People scheme can provide:

  • Floating support: a support worker visits a person in their own home to support them with maintaining their tenancy. Once someone has established themselves in the community and can live independently, the support will end and be provided to someone else.
  • Hostels: a hostel is somewhere for homeless people to live for a short time.
  • 24 hour supported accommodation: this may be a shared house with communal living areas or a self-contained flat within a larger building. Support staff are on-site 24 hours a day at these properties.
  • Supported accommodation with visiting support: similar to the 24 hour supported accommodation, however tenants are visited on a regular basis by support staff.
  • Warden or visiting support: sheltered housing with a scheme manager who has regular contact with tenants and an alarm for 24 hour cover in emergencies.
