North Wales Supporting People
Supporting People is an intensive floating tenancy support service operating within Flintshire designed to provide support to people within, or who have been linked to, the Criminal Justice System. The project will also support individuals who have or have had, substance misuse issues, who are experiencing difficulty sustaining their tenancy or who need assistance to find accommodation, and manage independent living. This project aims to assist service users to establish the foundations they require in order to help reduce their offending and substance use through sustainable accommodation support.
