Public health preventative services are designed to help vulnerable people gain or maintain their independence and enable them to carry out day-to-day living tasks.
The aim is to avoid people across a number of different service areas, such as homelessness, offenders or those at risk of offending, mental health and alcohol and drugs etc, being escalated into needing care or higher levels of support wherever possible. This includes assisting with tasks such as:
- Accessing the service
- Setting up and maintaining the home/tenancy
- Security, health and safety in the home
- Home management and life skills
- Well-being and general support
- Advice, advocacy and liaison
- Move-on from the service
For details on services available in your area and how to access them, download the service directory below.
For any care-related support, visit our Adult Care pages.
Service review and consultation
The new services to provide the future of adults housing-related support have been awarded, following a consultation in 2014, and below are some key messages on the services that will be provided:
- New services went live on Wednesday, 1 July, 2015
- These services include accommodation based, floating support, rough sleeper outreach, domestic abuse accommodation and mental health crisis house services
- The support tasks will remain the same. The housing related support eligible tasks list is still in place and these tasks will continue to be carried out
- Services have been re-procured for greater geographical parity across all district areas. All districts will now have emergency and non-emergency accommodation and floating support services
- The rough sleeper outreach service will be delivered alongside the floating support service
The results of the online feedback questionnaire which formed part of the consultation can be downloaded below.
