Floating Support Services
The Care Society provide housing and tenancy related support throughout Ceredigion to enable homeless and potentially homeless people to acquire the skills and resources they need to sustain a tenancy. Funded by Supporting People, the aim of the service is to help people to live successfully and independently in settled accommodation within their community.
Who do we support?
Families and their dependent children
People housed in temporary accommodation
People with physical disabilities
Young people leaving the care system
How do we Support people?
The service gives one-to-one support either in our offices across the County or at a service user’s home. All people supported in their tenancies by The Care Society will have a dedicated support worker who will draw up a detailed Support Plan with the service user.
We aim to enable and empower people to cope with problems affecting their lives:
Support to maintain their tenancy independently and/or resettlement advice in order to move to more appropriate accommodation as necessary, including liaison with landlords, viewings, social housing applications and the private rented property sector
Developing life skills that will allow people to cope better with daily living tasks
Providing general guidance, advice and support to improve confidence and self esteem
Help and access to advice relating to budgeting and debt management, with the aim of maximising income and appropriate welfare benefits
Support to ensure people feel safe and secure in their home
Assistance to access employment, training, education and volunteering opportunities
Support with relationships and family and feeling part of the community
Promoting good parenting skills
Referrals can be self-referrals using the Care Society contact details or just calling at our offices in Aberystwyth or Cardigan as well as via the Supporting People Team in Social Services.
