To follow any changes to this service, visit the Council Service Updates page.

Are you hoping to live independently within your community for as long as you can? Maybe you need some assistance to do this. Perhaps you’re looking for services to help your elderly relative stay in their own home?

There are a range of services and technology which can help:

Housing related support can help:

  • manage your personal budget to deal with accessing different services
  • find paid work and get the most out of the money you earn
  • access the Advocacy Service
  • access sheltered housing services, including a warden system to community alarm phone
  • develop life skills in setting up and maintaining your home so that you may be able to stay at home
  • develop your confidence and ability so that you can have choice and control and get involved in the community if you wish

To access this support you can request an assessment to speak with someone from the team who will talk to you about what it is you are looking for and need.
