What type of housing support?Housing support comes in a variety of packages: from very basic help and guidance, to more regular hands-on support.
- If you're looking to live independently in your own home, check out the city council's housing support service.

The city council co-ordinates support by private companies, voluntary organisations, the NHS, home improvement agencies, not-for-profit landlords and charities. It's called the 'Supporting People' programme.
