Housing Related Support: Resident Engagement

Housing Related Support

On 29 June 2021, the council's cabinet noted the council's preferred position that the Housing Related Support (HRS) service be ended on 31 March 2022. The main reason for this is that the needs the HRS service was originally designed to meet now significantly overlap with the tenant support services offered by landlords and other forms of support available in the community.

Between now and March 2022 we will be working with residents, the council's adult social care teams and other key stakeholders to ensure that residents' needs will continue to be met once the service ends.

We will be contacting all affected residents. In the meantime, if you believe you are affected by these proposals, please contact email (opens new window) with 'Housing Related Support' in the message heading, or telephone 0300 456 0100 and ask for 'Adults Commissioning: Housing Related Support'.

We will publish more information here as the work develops.

You can find a copy of the recommendations on the Agenda Cabinet - Tuesday 29 June 2021 10.00 am (opens new window) page. To access the paper, click on the PDF icon for 'agenda reports pack', then scroll down to 'Housing Related Support'
