We work with a number of landlords across Kent to offer high quality properties in nice residential areas, with good access to the local community. We
currently have shared, supported living houses and self-contained flats where people have their own
PCAS provide support to maintain the tenancy, pay bills, manage personal money and support people with daily living tasks.
We recognise many people may need more financial support than others and we operate a 'Friends of' bank account that can support people to put enough money aside to make sure bills are covered.
We have a dedicated Finance Manager who has years of
experience in helping people understand the welfare benefits system and supports people
to apply for the right benefits. We can discuss and support people with full budget plans to look at your incomings and
outgoings and see exactly what’s left.
The services we offer in these environments are designed to be home and not our workplace.
We can offer shared support in these
environments or a one to one service. Much of this is assessed by social
services and provided as part of a multi-agency agreement commissioned and paid
for by Kent County Council, needs assessment and financial assessment
We try to discuss a full housing pathway with people from a
very early stage. Whilst the houses we work with do not have limits on how long
people can stay we recognise that many people want their own front door and
their own house or flat.
It can often take a long time to find the most suitable
place in the right area that is affordable to the person who needs it. We are
always trying to find new homes with new landlords, whether that is private landlord, registered, or social housing providers.
