Supported Housing Strategy 2023-2028

Trafford’s Supported Housing Strategy 2023-2028 identifies key priorities in relation to supported housing in the borough. The aim of the Strategy is to deliver an integrated approach to the housing requirements of those with support needs and includes a focus on enabling people with support needs to live as independently as possible within the borough.

A Supported Housing Strategy Action Plan has been developed to detail what steps the Council and stakeholders should take over the next five years to meet the key priorities and overall vision of the Supported Housing Strategy.

The vision for the Supported Housing Strategy 2023-2028 is:

“Work collaboratively to provide a range of quality supported housing, and housing related support, to enable those with support needs to live independently in Trafford”

The strategic priorities are:

1. Enable people with support needs to live as independently as possible within Trafford.

2. Ensure an adequate supply of quality, accessible and affordable supported housing, and move-on accommodation, is in place.

3. Establish closer working relationships with external services, organisations, and charitable bodies to ensure appropriate support is available and easily accessible.

4. Ensure housing advice is promoted and easily accessible to those with support needs in Trafford.

5. Explore and review good practice in other Local Authority areas in relation to supported accommodation and support services and implement within Trafford where possible.
