This page explains floating support and how to access it. You may be living in your own home and finding it hard to manage the tenancy. You could be ready to find your own home but do not need a supported tenancy from Doorstep. These situations are best suited for floating support.
What is floating support?
Floating support is a service tailored to your individual housing needs and delivered by our asset coaches. It is designed to support you wherever you are living; whether you are in private rented, social housing, or yet to find the right housing for you. We can support you for up to 18 months or with a further extension of up to 2 years if needed.
If you’re having problems with your landlord, falling behind with bills and rent, struggling to stay connected with work and education, and feeling like all these pressures are making you at risk of losing your home, ask us about floating support.
How to access floating support
Currently, the only way to access our floating support is via the local homeless prevention service. The same form we use in an emergency is the same form we use to request supported housing OR floating support.
If you think you need a referral for floating support, get in touch with us today and ask for support in completing the form.
