Floating Support – Supported Housing
Ashton Pioneer Homes (APH) is fully committed to the Tameside Supporting People Strategy. We work in partnership with all the agencies that provide additional support to vulnerable people.
Supported Housing In Tameside
Funded by Tameside MBC, the supported housing contract is operated in partnership with Foundation, Threshold and Housing Advice. This is a new contract which commenced on 1st April 2013 for people requiring accommodation-based support. People in need of support can utilise the Single Point of Access (SPA) provided by Housing Advice from their office on Old Street in Ashton-under-Lyne.
For short-term support they will be directed to Threshold (see below) and should they have more complex needs for long-term support they will be directed to Foundation (see below).
Great Moves Tameside (Threshold) runs short term accommodation based support service for predominantly younger people (under 30) under a contract with Tameside Council. The services provide both housing management and support within a range of properties including self-contained and shared.
Here’s more useful information about Threshold
This scheme is designed to support those people with more complex needs who will require accommodation based support throughout Tameside.
Here’s more useful information about Foundation
The key aim of services that both Threshold and Foundation provide, is to equip people with skills to assist them to live independently in the community.
All referrals should be made to the Single Point of Access (SPA) which operates from the Tameside Housing Advice office.
As a partner agency APH can make a referral using Tameside’s Common Referral Form for accommodation based support services to the SPA access team
