Trafford Supported Housing Strategy Consultation

At Trafford Council, we know that having the right home can have a big impact on your quality of life and that maintaining independence is important to everyone, especially if you have support needs. With that in mind, we have developed the Draft Supported Housing Strategy.

Supported accommodation is a type of housing that is provided alongside support, supervision, or care to help people live as independently as possible within the community.

The aim of the Draft Supported Housing Strategy is to deliver an integrated approach to supported housing within the borough, with a focus on ensuring the right level of supported accommodation, and housing related support, is in place to promote independence. To achieve this aim, the Draft Strategy identifies the Council’s vision along with five priorities and their associated recommendations.

The Draft Support Housing Strategy vision 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 Draft Support Housing Strategy strategic priorities are:

  • Enable people with support needs to live as independently as possible within Trafford.
  • Ensure an adequate supply of quality accessible and affordable supported housing, and move-on accommodation, is in place.
  • Establish closer working relationships with external services, organisations, and charitable bodies to ensure appropriate support is available and easily accessible.
  • Ensure housing advice is promoted and easily accessible to those with support needs in Trafford.
  • Explore and review good practice in other Local Authority areas in relation to supported accommodation, and support services, and implement within Trafford where possible.
