Floating Support

Inspire Mental Health Floating Support Services are flexible locally based projects designed to assist individuals with mental health needs to access accommodation, maintain their home/tenancy and develop their ability to live independently in their own community.

Each of Inspire’s Floating Support Services is embedded in the community and responds to locally identified support needs. However the initial aim for all our Floating Support Services is to support individuals with mental health needs access accommodation or stabilise current accommodation.

The support delivered seeks to improve the life skills and confidence of the people we work with as well as their motivation to live independently in their own community. This involves supporting, encouraging and signposting on areas such as health and personal wellbeing, safety, security, finances, managing a home and creating access to opportunities within the local community.

Floating Support Services are time limited and Referrals are usually accepted from Northern Ireland Housing Executive and the local Health and Social Care Trust. However this may vary from scheme to scheme
