Supported and sheltered housing

Supported housing

Supported housing is housing that helps people to live independently in their own home whatever their age.

This type of housing is usually general needs housing or adapted housing with support to meet the needs of residents. This support will be provided through the Enabling Support team.

The main aim of Enabling Support is to provide good quality housing related support services to vulnerable people. This is to help people to live at home independently for as long as they want to, or are able to. By doing this, Enabling Support helps vulnerable people live independently in the community.

If you have health problems, a disability or you are an older person and struggling to manage your property please contact Adult Services.

You can also apply for supported housing via the council's First Stop Service.

Sheltered housing

Sheltered housing is designed for older people. The accommodation is fitted with emergency pull cords connected to a 24 hour call centre that will provide help in the event of an emergency.

Sheltered housing is usually available to people over the age of 60, however, can be made available to people who are younger with special housing needs.

Tenants of sheltered housing can have visits from a support worker to help them with any housing or tenancy related issues.

There are a number of sheltered and supported housing schemes in North Lincolnshire available through various housing associations. For details about specific sheltered or supported schemes, please contact individual housing associations.

Many of the sheltered housing schemes are now advertised on HomeChoiceLincs. You will need to register with HomeChoiceLincs to apply for these.
