You will work with your Floating Support advisor to identify what support option is best for you.

If a Support Plan is required, you and your Floating Support advisor will work together to create this. It involves looking at your needs and jointly agreeing goals for you to work towards. The plan will provide a guide and give you a clearer understanding of the actions that need to be undertaken.

Your Floating Support advisor may also refer you to other service providers to ensure you get the help you need.

Proud to be working with

“I’m so grateful for the help I got from the person who supported me at Bury Floating Support and for not giving up on me like so many other services have done in the past.  She helped me to get my mental health recognised and I’m looking forward to getting treatment as this will help me to live a happier and more fulfilling life in the future.  I am now in Bury Supported Housing and happy to continue to get support from staff as I know they will end my homelessness for good.”
