Introduction
Our Generic Floating Support Service helps vulnerably housed people who are aged 18 and over. We aim to empower Clients to achieve independent living by addressing their housing related support needs.

What the Service Delivers
This floating support service empowers vulnerable people to manage their own tenancies and to become independent. An allocated Support Worker will visit the client in their own home or at a convenient neutral venue and work to a Support Plan of agreed targets. Our clients can access group work sessions, the Organisational Service User Forum and any of the other activities and events which we organise.

Who is Eligible for the Service?
Vulnerable people aged 18 and over with housing related support needs are eligible for the service..

How to Access the Service
Referrals to the service are made by contacting our Central Referral Team on 01706 646922 or via e-mail at crt( at )stepping-stone.org.uk who will send you an electronic e-mail referral form for you to complete. Once a referral form is received we will arrange a Needs Assessment interview with the applicant; if they meet the criteria they will be placed on the waiting list for the service.

We operate a waiting list due to the heavy flow of referrals we receive and prioritise applicants based on need. As we empower people to live independently, clients move on quickly and time on the waiting list is minimised.

What support is offered?
The scheme provides support with all major issues a Client may be dealing with, including:

  • Accessing specialist agencies relevant to the Client’s specific needs
  • Accessing alternative accommodation, if applicable
  • Maintaining a tenancy
  • Developing independent living skills
