Floating Support Services

Floating Support is a service that provides housing related support to vulnerable adults (over 16) to enable them to maintain their independence in their own home. Floating support services will generallly be short term and will have the flexibility to support a person wherever they live - as distinct from accommodation based services, where support is tied to particular accommodation.

This kind of support service helps the individual to become more independent, and may mean that they can continue to live independently at home when without support it would be difficult to do so.

Housing related support might include:

  • Setting up and maintaining a home or tenancy
  • Managing finances and benefit claims
  • Developing independent living skills
  • Gaining access to other services
  • Help to make sure the clients accommodation is safe and secure
