Housing with support

If you need to move home because of a health problem or to get support, we can help by carrying out an assessment of your housing and support needs.

We will look at whether you need a certain type of home such as:

  • ground floor
  • housing for wheelchairs
  • sheltered housing.

We can also award additional priority for housing based on your housing and support needs.
