Action

Rotherham South - Homeless Accommodation & Young Person's Hostel All Other Area's - Floating support to people in their own homes

Action Housing & Support works with vulnerable & marginalised people across Yorkshire and the Midlands, strengthening communities by tackling social exclusion, homelessness, drug misuse and repeat offending by working in partnership with Probation, Local Authority, Social Services, Health Authority and Benefits Agencies. The needs of each client are discussed with their personal support worker, which then aims to work in partnership to create a support plan tailored to each individual, which is reviewed regularly.

Everything is aimed at empowering our service users and equipping them with the skills and confidence they need to lead independent lives. A major part of that support involves encouraging each service user to become a part of the organisation itself, to help influence the way we develop and to help direct the work we do. We also aim to achieve the very best in equal working practices and strive to foster diversity among our staff and service users.
 

Services

Young Persons Services: Accommodation based support service for service users at risk of homelessness aged 16-25 years. The project is made up of a hostel, shared & single person accommodation. Floating Support Offender Project: Provides support to service users within their own home. Floating Support Substance Misuse Project: Provides support to service users who have substance misuse issues within their own home.
evere and enduring mental health distress.  It aims to provide good quality furnished accommodation combined with a comprehensive person-centred package of ‘on site’ emotional and practical support. Outreach Project: To prevent homelessness and create sustainable tenancies, therefore establishing settled communities. Aim: To facilitate the unmet needs of vulnerable and socially excluded individuals. The project is designed to be intensive, yet flexible to provide regular contact or short term involvement. Support can be provided or the service user can be referred onto our floating support projects. The aim for the above projects is to assist service users in establishing and maintaining a stable lifestyle and encourage them towards greater independence. This is achieved through working in partnership with Probation, Local Authority, Social Services, Health Authority and Benefits Agencies, to support and empower service uses to retain secure accommodation and re-integrate with their communities. Support can last for a maximum of two years during which time, help will be given to secure their own tenancy. Interim Accommodation Project: The aim of this project is to provide temporary accommodation and support to service to service users who are awaiting assessment of their homeless application by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC). If the application is accepted as a priority need, accommodation and support will continue to be provided by the service until a more suitable tenancy is offered by the RMBC.
 

Partnership working

Comments from beneficiaries & partners

Quote (1) – I don’t know what I would have done without Action Housing’s help and support, you have helped me find new accommodation and more.

Quote (2) – It’s been of complete full attendance  of the help SC, to get me through the security and insecurity of myself, with adjusting of settling into my new home and paying my bills. Also listening to my stress levels and family problems and worries and I hope it continues to be beneficial. Thank you.

Quote (3) – I have had some really good support from my keyworker and they have done a lot for me.
