The Green Gables Floating Support Service offers a range of support services to clients living in their own homes. We can support families to move into a new tenancy, or help them to maintain the tenancy that they already have. We will work with them on the skills needed to care for their family effectively and move on positively with their lives.
We will facilitate constructive dialogue with landlords where there is a threat of eviction, and assist our clients to develop strategies to better manage their visitors, budget their money and pay their bills. We will advise on college and work, and research suitable childcare where needed. YWCA also employs a range of specialist practitioners that will assist families to overcome any issues relating to substance misuse, domestic abuse, child sexual exploitation and debt.
