About Swansea Supporting People Programme
The City and County of Swansea Supporting People Team administer a programme which can provide housing related support to help you maintain your tenancy and live independently. Help is provided if you are at risk of becoming homeless – that includes staying temporarily with a friend or family member.
The services that the programme funds can be broadly grouped by the following service models:
Floating Support – Support worker visits you in your home and gives regular support for an agreed period of time.
Temporary Supported Housing – you move into accommodation for a short period of time where support is provided.
Permanent Supported Housing – you move into accommodation for a longer period of time where support is provided.
Direct Access Hostels – 24 hour access to support including Women’s Aid Refuge
Sheltered Housing – you move into accommodation for people over 55 years of age with shared facilities where support is available.
Information on the full range of accommodation and support services including referral routes and access criteria can be found on the Supporting People website.
