Drop in sessions for homeless

Residents of Cheshire West are being urged to find out more about borough’s housing-related and homelessness services at public events
The drop-in sessions, being held at locations borough-wide, are part of the 12-week consultation currently taking place.

Cheshire West and Chester Council currently commissions four housing-related and homelessness services across the borough, run by different providers:

• Housing-related floating support – a visiting support service, which aims to prevent a person losing their home in the first instance and helping people to resettle when moving on to independent living. The current service provider also operates advice and information hubs in key locations.

• Housing-related support for people aged 16-25 years – supported housing service which can be deployed to any property, enabling preventative work to take place including mediation and supporting a tenancy.

• Housing related support for those over 25 years – support can be delivered to any property and also move with someone as they progress to independent living.

• Homelessness service for single people and couples – for those who are homeless and require a place to stay, including people who would otherwise be sleeping rough. The service has a proactive approach to outreach and works with other agencies to share intelligence and locate individuals.

All of the current contracts are due to finish at the end of March 2018 and the Council is now looking to ensure that the new service is more co-ordinated and efficient.

The drop-in sessions are open to anyone, and staff will be on-hand to provide information and answer questions:
20th January – 2pm – 4pm – Wyvern House, Winsford
27th January – 9am – 11.30am – Ellesmere Port Civic Hall, Vauxhall suite
1st February – 3pm – 7pm – Chester City Football Club
14th February – 3pm – 5pm – Northwich Library
