The Housing and Supported Assessment Service works together with those using the service and their support networks where appropriate. The service assists in guiding people in developing the skills they need to live on their won, such as cooking, budgeting and shopping. People’s wishes are paramount and are placed at the centre of all support. Our aim is to assist people in moving on to new accommodation by supporting them to access the housing register, bid for properties and help with moving arrangements. The service undertakes assessments and can advise people accordingly of the affordability of rent (including service charges) charged to people. Service staff work alongside people in exploring options about different funding streams, including direct payments, personal budgets and individuals service funds, and ensure people are aware of the impacts of options.
