About the service
Unfortunately, we are not able to accept any new referrals at present. We have received an unprecedented number of referrals recently and the waiting list has become very long.
We are aiming to reopen to referrals in November 2023. Please see our other services to find out more information about support that is available now.
Our Complex Needs Housing Multi Disciplinary Team is here to provide advice, information, onward referral and holistic support to people who are experiencing mental ill health or need support with their mental wellbeing.
The service is for clients who are presenting to the housing teams as homeless at District and Borough councils.
We work alongside you to develop a tailored package of support that meets your needs, working with you to find the solutions that are right for you.
Our high quality service is flexible and will help you to resolve real-life difficulties and to improve your own independence, quality of life and well-being.
We work in partnership with local agencies such as district councils and housing teams.
