Support and advice
We want all our residents to feel comfortable and secure in their homes, so providing support and advice to those who need a helping hand is a vital part of our work.
Click on the links below to find out more about the support and advice we offer:
Are you struggling with money?
If you are in receipt of income support, your work coach at the job centre plus can support you to access ‘the flexible support fund’. This money can be used to help you start or move towards finding work, pay for training, cover child care costs during work experience or travel costs. For more information speak to you work coach at your local Job centre.
Do you have a disability or long-term illness?
If you have a disability or find it hard to get around because of long-term illness, speak to us about making adaptations to your house so you can stay independent at home.
If you are in receipt of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) please be aware that the government is replacing this with Personal Independence Payments.
DLA will end for everyone of working age (16 to 64 on the day PIP is introduced) by October 2020 even if they have an indefinite period award.
Do you need emergency assistance at home?
For older, vulnerable and disabled residents and people escaping domestic violence we can provide personal alarms for a low monthly fee to help them stay safe in their home.
