Housing Support

Individuals who become vulnerable may need support to enable them to continue living in their own homes. This support can take a wide variety of forms and is sometimes part of a wider package of health and social care.

The resources listed below include policy and examples of good practice that should be helpful to commissioners and providers of such support services.

Housing support can be offered as an integral part of a tenancy, lease or home ownership, for example in Extra Care or sheltered housing. You will find resources related to Extra Care (including sheltered housing) on the Extra Care pages.

You will also find some resources that are specific to particular service user groups on relevant pages (Dementia, Mental Health, Physical Disability, Learning Disability, Older People)
