This page explains the different accommodation options we have under supported housing.
Supported housing describes the tenancies and licences in our properties that come with an asset coach attached. The asset coach delivers our floating support while you are in our property and for some people this can continue once you move on.
Shared housing is for those between 18 and 25 years old. The houses are fully furnished and you will have your own room with a key. All of your bills are included and covers: water, gas & electricity, council tax, internet. If you are in receipt of benefits you will pay a small weekly top up to cover your rent. There is no smoking, pets or children allowed in shared housing.
All of our houses and shared flats are within central Grimsby, housing 2-3 people at any one time.
Flats are for single people or couples, between 18 and 25 years old, and are subject to affordability checks. In some circumstances we will offer a ground-floor flat to a one or two parent family until the baby is one years old.
There are no moving in fees; the cost of a flat is the weekly rent plus your bills on top. All of our flats are fully decorated and carpeted, and have a cooker, fridge/freezer and washing machine installed.
In our flats we do not allow smoking. If you wish to keep a pet you need to gain permission before your tenancy starts. The majority of our flats are not suitable for pets as they have communal hallways and gardens.
Support can last up to 18 months and beyond, with a maximum time of 2 years. If you are ready to move on sooner, you could have the option of moving to a general needs property when you no longer need the support of a coach.
Family housing is for those aged between 16 and 25 years old. If you are under 18 your housing pathway will start with a referral to children’s services.
Our family houses are for one or two parent families that need to find their first home. This could be a one-bedroom flat if you are pregnant or have a new-born, or it could be a 2 bedroom house. We have a small number of 3 bedroom houses suitable for larger families.
There are no moving in fees. All of our properties are fully decorated and carpeted, and have a cooker installed. In our family houses and flats we do not allow smoking. If you wish to keep a pet you need to gain permission before your tenancy starts.
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.
General needs housing
In our general needs housing service we have shared houses, flats and family houses for young people who do not need any additional help in managing a tenancy or require minimal tenancy sustainment support to manage their tenancy.
