Our Floating Support service is a free advice and information network for people in Bury who need help to maintain or find a tenancy, or are struggling in their own home.
We are here to advise and support you with any tenancy-related issues you may have, and can work with you for a period of up to six months.

No matter how big or small the housing related problem is, we have a variety of support options that can help you.
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. Support Planning involves looking at your needs and jointly agreeing goals for you to work towards.
The action 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.
We also provide dispersed units of supported accommodation across Bury for individuals who are unable to secure their own tenancy due to their current circumstances, which may be due to homelessness.
The aim of this short-term accommodation is to equip people with the necessary independent living skills required to secure and sustain a tenancy. Supported accommodation also provides an opportunity to remove some of the barriers people may face, such as addressing previous rent arrears.
