Floating Support Schemes in Barking and Dagenham

Our floating support service is available in addition to our services for supported living, in Barking and Dagenham and across London. Sometimes called tenancy sustainment support, this service branch helps people who might otherwise struggle to cope with living independently in their own homes. The service, like all of our services, is built around the needs of the individual, and adapted to support them as well as possible.




Who Do We Support?

  • Those with mental health issues.
  • Those with drug or alcohol problems.
  • Those who are homeless or at risk of losing their home.
  • Young people leaving care.
  • Those with learning disabilities.
