Women’s mental health floating support service in Bristol
This service provides housing related support, advice and/or assistance to vulnerable women living with acute and enduring mental health support needs that impact on their housing.
We offer resettlement support to women who are moving into new accommodation and tenancy support to women in their existing housing. The service is available regardless of mental health diagnosis or statutory care eligibility.
The aim of the support is to improve mental health and physical wellbeing, including crisis management, facilitating access to other specialist support services and liaising with those services as appropriate. It includes help with managing money, settling into a new community, finding voluntary work or training courses and help to find activities during the day.
There is a high level of support in the beginning which is gradually reduced as the women feel better able to manage. The service works with women aged 16 and over, support is for up to one year in the first instance.
