Supporting people funds housing related support. This can include helping you to:
- ensure that you keep your rent or mortgage payments up to date including help with accessing benefits and managing a budget
- ensure that you are safe in your home
- get maintenance or repairs carried out
- get adaptations installed
- deal with neighbour disputes
- settle into your new home
- keep to the conditions of your tenancy
This list isn’t meant to be exhaustive and you may need support funded by social services or health as well as supporting people. Sometimes the support may be provided by the same people regardless of who pays for it. Please see our eligibility criteria.
Supporting people can’t help with personal care or health care or with specialist therapy or counselling, although you can be supported to find specialist therapy or counselling.
Some support is provided in specialist accommodation where staff are on duty for set periods each day. This includes sheltered accommodation. Other support, which we call floating support, is provided to you maybe once or twice a week, either in your own home or at another convenient central location. This kind of support is called floating support. Support that is provided at a central location includes the support provided by the Bracknell Forest resettlement team and the support provided at drop in sessions at New Hope by the generic and specialist floating support service.
