Bury Floating Support
We are a free support and information service for people in Bury who need help to maintain or find a tenancy, or are struggling in their own home.
We are here to advise and support you with any tenancy-related issues you may have, and we will work with you for a period of up to six months.
We also provide some dispersed units of supported accommodation across Bury for those individuals who are unable to secure their own tenancy due to their current circumstances, which may be due to homelessness. The aim of this short term accommodation will be to equip people with the necessary independent living skills required to secure and sustain a tenancy and to provide a window of opportunity to remove some of the barriers people may face, such as addressing previous rent arrears.
To make a referral into our service, you, or a professional supporting you can follow the link below to complete an online Central Access Point referral form. Please ensure to tick the relevant box as to whether you require floating support or supported accommodation.
How can we support you?
The support we offer can help you to:
maintain your tenancy
set up and manage your home
deal with money
apply for the right benefits
access education, training and employment
get involved with your community.
We will ensure that the support you receive will be tailored to your needs. Contact could include face-to-face visits, drop-in sessions, support groups, telephone calls, or meetings at community venues.
No matter how big or small the housing related problem is, we have a variety of support options that can help you.
You will work with your Floating Support worker to help identify what support option is best for you. If a Support Plan is required, you and your Floating Support Worker will work together to create this. Support Planning involves looking at your support needs and jointly agreeing on goals for you to work towards. The action plan will provide a guide for you to work on and will give you an understanding about what actions need to be undertaken.
Your Floating Support Worker may also refer you to other service providers to ensure you get the help you need.
