Homeless or at risk

Housing-related support for vulnerable people

The Supporting People programme can provide housing related support to help vulnerable people to live more independently and remain in their home.

Tackling homelessness

Tackling homelessness (when people don’t have somewhere safe, secure and suitable to live on a regular basis) is a priority for the Council. To help us do this, we aim to:

  • Prevent homelessness by providing advice and help to citizens, so that they’re able to stay in their current home or find somewhere suitable to move to
  • Help people who are homeless to find safe, secure and suitable homes and become settled, so they don’t become homeless again
