Our Mental Health Supported Living Schemes provides individuals with short term accommodation to prepare them with the skills for maintaining and sustaining a Tenancy

We work in partnership with City of York Council as part of their Resettlement pathway.

York Housing Association provides Intensive Housing Management on behalf of City of York Council to their tenants who are at risk of losing their accommodation. 

Support that can be offered includes:
 

  • maintaining a tenancy

  • claiming benefits that you are entitled to

  • budgeting

  • help with debt and arranging payment plans

  • independent living skills

  • liaising with other agencies on your behalf

  • sign posting you to appropriate services

York Housing Association understands that being homeless doesn’t always mean you’re sleeping rough.

We work in partnership with Scarborough Borough Council to provide accommodation for people who are without settled, safe or secure accommodation – you may be sofa surfing, threatened with eviction or where you’re living may be unsuitable for a variety of reasons.


What do we offer?

Accommodation services – this can be in a hostel, small shared houses or self-contained flats. If you find yourself in that position the first thing you should do is contact Scarborough Borough Council Housing Options Team on 0723 232323
