Supporting People

'Supporting People' is a funding programme from the National Assembly for Wales that pays for housing related support. The main aim is to help vulnerable people live successfully and independently in settled accommodation within the community.

Support should enable and empower service users to cope as independently as possible. Assistance may include help to improve daily living skills, social interactions and community involvement, but specifically focuses on support services that ensure people with disabilities can live safely and securely in their own home. The programme can help people by:
   
• Offering people help with managing their budgets and assistance accessing services dealing with benefits, finances and legal issues 
• Offering to help to ensure people feel safe and secure in their home
• Helping people to make and keep appointments
