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.

Supported Accommodation

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.
