About Gwynedd Supporting People Programme

Supporting people – Preventing homelessness

The Supporting People programme commissions and funds providers to offer support to vulnerable people to keep their tenancy and avoid homelessness.

The aim of the programme is to enable vulnerable people, at risk of homelessness, to live as independently as possible, by providing housing-related support services.

This could be in people’s own homes, hostels, sheltered housing, or other specialist supported housing. It provides complementary support for people who may also need personal or medical care.

There are over 20 Supporting People Accredited Service Providers offering support in Gwynedd at present.

You could be eligible to receive support from a Provider to help:

  • establish and sustain a home
  • develop domestic, practical and social skills
  • develop basic life skills, such as managing money, claiming benefits, cooking, shopping and supporting you to pay your bills
  • gain access to training, education and work
  • gain access to services such as health, social care and legal services
  • find suitable accommodation and related support services
  • community alarm systems
  • warden services

How to apply for support?

Contact your housing officer, social worker, doctor/ nurse, or probation officer in the first place, or you can contact the service providers directly.
