Support in Your Own Home

We support people that are living in their own homes but may need some support to avoid them becoming homeless.

Adref has a team of staff in Rhondda Cynon Taf and Merthyr Tyfil that work with approximately 300 people per year. We draw up a support plan with the service user that states what areas the support will focus on; when we will meet; and for how long. The length of time for support can vary, though some people complete the support after 9 - 12 weeks. Once their support needs have been met the Supporting People team refers a new person. The support can encompass anything that helps people avoid homelessness.

These are just a few examples:-

 

  • Identify the issues that have threatened a person’s housing
  • Help people develop skills that will promote independence
  • Ensure people are receiving the statutory service support and financial assistance they are entitled to
  • Help people assimilate into their communities
  • Re-establish relationship with family if appropriate

 

This is what we offer in each area:-
