Sutton Housing Partnership work closely with a floating support service that is run by the London Borough of Sutton. The service is for the support of any person affected by domestic abuse. The service is free.
Floating support aims to help residents deal with the aftermath of domestic abuse by empowering them to make positive changes to re-claim their lives and to focus on positive life goals. The Floating Support service offers a point of contact for residents affected by domestic abuse and is committed to providing a safe, sensitive, non-judgemental and non-oppressive support service.
The service is provided by a specialist worker who is trained in social welfare matters including housing, advocacy, welfare benefits, debt and money advice, life coaching, employment and training and child welfare. The service is for residents affected by domestic abuse and includes residents who:
Are coming out of a refuge or other safe, temporary accommodation (e.g. a friend’s house) and taking up a tenancy
Have left a shared home to set up on their own
Are living alone after the abusive partner has left
