Middlesbrough Council commissions housing-related support services to improve the quality of life for vulnerable people by providing a stable environment which enables greater independence. The planning and development of services is based upon the needs of local people.
The aim of housing-related support is to develop and sustain an individual's capacity to live independently in their accommodation.
Some examples of housing-related support are:
- Help with managing money and paying bills
- Help with understanding the rights and responsibilities of a tenancy agreement
- Signposting to other agencies - such as drug and alcohol services, education and employment agencies
- Provision of a community alarm service, warden or scheme manager
