Homecare Housing works in partnership with our Support Services.

Overview

Homecare Housing provides temporary and long-term accommodation to those experiencing a housing need so they may continue living within the familiarity of their own community.

Housing

Homecare Housing currently have over 400 housing units across Northern Ireland and accepts referrals for accommodation from the NI Housing Executive by providing fully furnished, self-contained units for both individuals and families experiencing a housing need.

Working with Support Services

Homecare Housing works in partnership with our Support Services Teams. Once accommodation is provided, we assess if the client requires support and if so, seek a referral for support if not already pre-arranged.

Client Groups

Homecare Housing provide accommodation to a wide range of client groups often experiencing a housing crisis for reasons such as house re-possession, family breakup, financial hardship, overcrowding in their family home, or asylum seeker.

Crisis Response

Crisis response is about providing individuals with emergency short-term or long-term accommodation. This service is aimed at individuals experiencing a housing crisis. Some reasons for this may include:

  •  Family breakups
  •  Financial hardship
  •  Addiction
  •  or Intimidation
     

Types of Accommodation

We provide safe and comfortable homes for families and individuals. Our tailored homes are fully furnished with all appliances supplied. All accommodation is fully health and safety compliant.

Maintenance of Accommodation

Homecare Housing carry out regular health and safety inspections to ensure the accommodation is complaint with all Health and Safety legislation as well as identifying possible hazards within property and advising clients accordingly to minimise risks and on the general upkeep of properties. We use a range of reputable trades people to carry out necessary repairs or attend to any concern when reported. Homecare Housing also have Maintenance Teams preparing accommodation for new placements whenever accommodation becomes vacant so that a high standard can be maintained. 

 

Specialist Housing

Accommodation can also be adapted to meet the needs of the disabled or persons with issues with their mobility. Adaptions may include the provision of ramps for level access, hand/grab rails etc. We can also install appropriate technology to ensure health and safety within the home. Due to complexity of such cases involving a multi-agency approach, the relevant Health Trusts may also avail of our care and nursing services for a tailored, person centred care package to integrate with our housing services providing the client with a greater level of independence rather than residing in a care home or hospital.
