Project Description

The project operates in Flintshire and provides emergency overnight accommodation for service users who would otherwise be sleeping rough that night.  The service provides short term residential support with the aim of meeting individuals’ needs, which promote independence and lead to a sustainable move-on.  The project is funded through the Supporting People Programme Grant and is required to meet the Welsh Government’s National Outcomes Framework. The Framework’s four main aims are:

- Promoting Personal and Community Safety

- Promoting Independence and Control

- Promoting Economic Progress and Financial Control

- Promoting Health and Wellbeing

Purpose of Role

To coordinate and provide short term residential support that enables and empowers Service Users to address housing and/or personal difficulties, build their skills and confidence, and ultimately improve their ability to access and maintain accommodation. The support will not create or increase dependence. It will ‘do with’ rather than ‘do for’.  Support will help people improve their control, understanding and involvement in dealing with the issues that affect them, and assist Service Users to achieve their preferred outcomes.
