Supporting People is a working partnership between
- Islington Council
- The Probation Service
- Islington Primary Care Trust (PCT)
Provider organisations, service users and their carers are also involved in the partnership. The aim of this partnership is to deliver locally relevant housing related support services to help vulnerable people live independently in the community. This is achieved by providing support that prevents problems that can often lead to tenancy failure, hospitalisation, institutional care or homelessness. It can also help smooth the transition from accommodation based residential support to independent living .
