Providing the right accommodation and support is vital in enabling vulnerable people to live independently in the community; ensuring they have choice and control of where and how they live.
To do this successfully requires a partnership approach, which works in a joined up and strategic way to meet the accommodation needs of vulnerable people through a variety of mechanisms; such as supported housing, extra care, and general needs housing (via floating support).
Examples of the vulnerable groups our partnership working aims to help include:
- Older People
- Young People
- People with Mental Health, Learning Disabilities and Physical Disabilities
- Teenage Parents
- Substance Misuse
Through a process of working closely with colleagues from Adult Social Care, the Doncaster Childrens Trust, St Leger Homes and Public Health, we will identify the particular housing requirements of individual groups and explore the development of a range of housing options that will a provide suitable choice of accommodation solutions for vulnerable people.
