Improved Floating Support/Domiciliary Care services

The key objectives of the Supporting People Programme services are the provision of welfare services to:

  • Reduce the incidence of tenancy breakdown and / or service users losing their homes
  • Promote programmes of resettlement and enable people to live independently within their own home
  • Reduce crisis admission to hospital by providing higher care packages to service users living in independent flats. This includes providing personal care and medication administration is necessary.

The provision of the Floating Support Service will contribute to the following expected outcomes:

  • Reductions in levels of homelessness.
  • Reduced levels in incidences of repeat homelessness and relapse in mental state
  • Reductions in the use of inappropriate temporary accommodation.
  • Reduction in rough sleeping (including those who could be considered as the “hidden homeless”).
  • Better access to health care and reduction in health inequalities. This includes better access to both emergency and planned crisis intervention.
  • Improved access to Mental Health Trust services, thereby reducing the rates of relapse by  indeterminate causes.
  • A reduction in crisis admissions to hospital.
  • A reduction in delayed hospital discharges.
  • Reduction in the inappropriate use of residential care.
  • Enabling the transition of vulnerable service users with mental health support needs, to independent living.
  • Reductions in the numbers of service users who re-offend.
  • Increased provision of drugs education intervention programmes to people at risk of substance misuse.
  • Promotion of wider choice in housing and support and independence.
  • Promotion of more stable lifestyles, social inclusion and community cohesion.
  • Work with those who are homeless to reconnect with their local area of origin within London.
  • We are also working with NWL with a few of expanding our DOM Care aiming at supporting a wider population.
  • We endeavor to work with other local authorities to provide our DOM Care service.

Short-term support is designed to assist individuals who are experiencing difficulties in:

  • their housing situation or
  • are in transition or
  • are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

Floating Support aims to stabilize crisis situations; such crises may re-occur and in such circumstances support can be provided again. The level of support can vary and is based on the assessed needs of an individual service user.

Floating Support enables and advises people to gain and maintain suitable accommodation or a tenancy it also offers preventative measures to enable people to remain in their own home. Service users develop skills required for independent living and their broader needs by enabling access to other relevant services. The ultimate aim is to improve a service user’s quality of life and promote / maintain independent living.
