Housing Related Support Services - Information for Providers

Nottingham City Council funds more than 35 Housing Related Support Providers to enable vulnerable people to live as independently as possible.

Housing Related Support ('HRS') Services are targeted at people who are homeless; people with mental health problems and/or substance misuse problems; people with learning difficulties; older people; younger people; women fleeing domestic violence; ex-offenders; and a number of other vulnerable groups. There are currently more than 100 HRS services being funded in Nottingham.

People may be living in their own homes, sometimes as owner occupiers, but are typically tenants of housing associations, councils or private landlords. Some live in specialist accommodation such as a hostel, a refuge or sheltered housing. There are currently more than 35 different providers of Housing Related Support in Nottingham.

HRS services may consist of a home visit for a short period each day/week; an on-site full time support worker; advice on home improvements; or a community alarm system. Services can be permanently attached to a property or be 'floated' in and out in accordance with the changing needs of a particular individual. The support provided includes a wide range of activities such as assistance with life skills, budgeting and managing a tenancy.
