The Housing Support Gateway allows people in Bath and North East Somerset to apply for a wide range of housing related support services that are focused on supporting people to live as independently as possible, and to prevent homelessness or the need to move into residential or registered care.
Once you have applied, you will join a single waiting list which Providers can access in order to fill vacancies in their services. They will use the information that you have provided in your application to ‘match’ their services to your support needs. Please note, that they will also consider your answer to the question ‘Which of these describes you?’ – this is because the services are set up and experienced in working with particular client groups.
The services are popular and often more than 1 person on the waiting list will ‘match’ the service. Priority for a particular service is usually based on how well it can meet an applicant’s needs and how long the applicant has been waiting.
To see which services might be able to help you, click on the ‘Service Search’ tab at the top, and click on the ‘Supported Client Group’ that fits with your answer to the question ‘Which of these describes you?’ and then choose the ‘Supported Age Range’ that includes your age. You can then click on the ‘Partners’ tab, for further information about the services.
