Housing and Support Policy


Economic, psychological and sociological circumstances impact people over the course of their lives. When people lose their homes it is usually at the end of a period of sustained difficulty and or a traumatic episode in their lives. People in these dilemmas are offered accommodation and their basic needs are addressed. A needs assessment is carried out in respect of each client’s health, social and housing need. This informs the exploration of housing options and care planning. The assessment is carried out by ACT key worker staff and with the assistance of the Statutory Multi-Disciplinary Homeless Action Team (H.A.T.). This team includes: Coordinator, Team Leader, Public Health Nurse, Psychiatric Community Nurse, Resettlement Officer, Tenancy Sustainment Officer, Community Welfare Officer D.S.P., Youth Worker, and Occupational Therapist Service.
