Supporting people

Supporting People is a Welsh Government programme that provides housing-related support to vulnerable people over the age of 16.  It enables them to live independently in the community and avoid the risk of becoming homeless.

What is housing related support?

Housing related support helps vulnerable people develop or maintain the skills and confidence necessary to live as independently as possible.  It can include help and advice with:

  • developing life and domestic skills
  • budgeting and managing money
  • accessing other services and opportunities
  • establishing safety and security

How to apply for support

If you would like to ask for housing related support, you can:

  • ask your social worker or health professional to contact us
  • ask a friend or a member of your family to contact us
  • contact us yourself, either by calling us on 01824 706450 or sending an email to supporting.people@denbighshire.gov.uk
