How will I be assessed?

If you are referred to the Council for supported housing, officers from the Single Homeless Team will carry out a detailed assessment to see what type of supported housing is most suitable for you. They will need to see all relevant documentation available to help with the assessment process. This can include, but is not limited to:

  • needs and risk assessment
  • medical reports
  • Probation Services reports
  • housing histories
  • documentary proof of residence in the Royal Borough
  • identification documents
  • proof of income documents.

An officer from the Single Homeless Team may contact you or the person who referred you for more information. They may ask you to come into the Town Hall for an assessment interview to collect more details. If at this stage you are not eligible or suitable for supported housing, we will advise the person that referred you and you can discuss other housing options with them. If we think that supported housing is suitable for you, we will place you on a waiting list with other people.
