Housing related support services

Helping you live independently in your own home, including alarms, skills, advocacy and training.

Our offer

We can help you with:

  • learning domestic, life or social skills to become more independent
  • 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
  • providing alarm systems to enable people to call for help in an emergency


Completing a financial assessment will help us work out the amount you can contribute towards the cost of services such as Telecare, Lifeline, a warden service or residing in a supported living scheme.

These services are provided by different providers across North Yorkshire.
