About the Service
Leeds Supported Housing Service provides a wide range of housing across Leeds, from self contained flats to tenancies in shared houses. The service is intended for single people from 18 years old upwards who have medium to long term housing supported needs which can be met by the delivery of up to two hours visiting support per week. We are able to work alongside other agencies for those people who require more intensive support.
Aims and Objectives of Service
We aim to provide quality housing with tenancy related support to enable people to maintain independence in the community. We aim to provide support that is flexible to individuals, their objectives and their changing needs. We will help tenants with a whole range of housing related support to successfully sustain a tenancy.

The support that we are able to provide includes :
- Managing a tenancy

We take a holistic approach by addressing all aspect’s of a client’s life – ensuring as far as possible, that all support needs are addressed; whether directly by directly by the service, externally by other agencies or by the client themselves.
