Tenancy Support Service
The service is registered with the Care Inspectorate as a Housing Support Service (CS2017358630).
The Tenancy Support Service provides a visiting housing support service to individuals at risk of becoming homeless or have recently experienced homelessness.
Support will be provided on a short term basis to promote independence and ensure that individuals develop the skills necessary to maintain their home without support.
Additional support will be provided to those individuals for whom short term support is not always sufficient. For example those with multiple needs or young care leavers.
The service is provided from 8am-6pm, Monday to Friday. Support is offered on a person-centered basis, allowing individuals to develop the skills they require to gain and maintain their tenancy, as well as engage with their community.
This is achieved by encouraging individuals to engage with and be involved in the Tenancy Star assessment process, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of their individual support plan.
The team operates a multi-agency approach, including working relationships with Health, Social Work and Housing as well as other voluntary organisations.
