Support for specific client groups

We work closely with numerous Housing Associations and support agencies to provide specialist housing services for people with a range of support needs.

These housing services accommodate clients such as young people, older people, victims of domestic violence, Gypsies and Travellers and applicants with specialised needs such as disabilities and mental health problems.
