Supporting people

Supporting people is a government programme that develops housing support services to help vulnerable people live independently.

Some examples of the things that support services can help you with are:

  • Learning domestic, life or social skills to become more independent;
  • Assistance in applying for benefits, budgeting and managing debts;
  • Finding somewhere to live and setting up home;
  • Gaining access to other support or community services;
  • Finding out about work or training;
  • Dealing with other professionals, family and neighbours and advocating on your behalf;
  • Keeping an eye on your wellbeing; and
  • Providing alarm systems to enable people to call for help in an emergency.

These services are provided by different providers across North Yorkshire. Contact us for more details of this service.
