History:

Approximately 6 years ago Depaul’s Cloverhill family accommodation based service ran a pilot project to quantify the need for a floating support service to support families moving on from Depaul’s family accommodation based services. The project clearly identified a gap in supports leading to Family Services Floating Support service been established. This vital service now provides support to NIHE family hostels.

What we do:

Every family will have different needs so as soon as engagement begins they are appointed a support worker who will work with them to create and implement a personalised support plan depending on their families individual needs. The support is very flexible and can last for as long or short a time as needed, though not normally longer than two years at any one time. The service is also flexible in that families can re-refer back in as many times as needed for support.

Where we operate:

This service works in the Greater Belfast and Lisburn areas.

Partners:

Supporting People and the Northern Ireland Housing Executive.

Referrals:

Families can be referred through Depaul family accommodation based services, the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, Social Services or families can self-refer by contacting the service directly.
