It has been compiled using freedom of information (FOI) requests sent to all local authorities in England and Wales.
Supporting People is a working partnership between
The Probation Service
Islington Primary Care Trust (PCT)
Provider organisations, service users and their carers are also involved in the partnership. The aim of this partnership is to deliver locally relevant housing related support services to help vulnerable people live independently in the community.
The Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG) directs many elements of the programme, but the services that each programme provides reflect the local needs of the communities they serve.
Supporting People offers vulnerable people the opportunity to improve their quality of life through greater independence. This is achieved by providing housing related support to prevent problems that can often lead to tenancy failure, hospitalisation, institutional care or homelessness. It can also help smooth the transition from accommodation based residential support to independent living .
Links for Living is a new Council online directory for adults who are looking for ideas for a healthier, more fulfilling and independent life. It will be particularly useful if you or some one you look after is disabled or has health or social care needs. You’ll find suppliers who provide support at home, as well as details of care homes, local transport and advice organisations and practical information about housing and money matters.
