Wandsworth Tenancy Support

Description

Tenancy Support is a free service that gives one-to-one housing related support to vulnerable Wandsworth Borough Council residents. Tenancy Support Officers can offer short-term interventions of up to 2 years to assist tenants to regain their independence and to fully manage their home and tenancy.

Assistance and advice can be given around a wide range of issues including welfare benefits, reducing rent arrears, ordering repairs, personal budgeting and accessing other services.

The service will establish an individual's specific requirements and draw up a Support Plan with the resident, which will be reviewed on a regular basis. The Support Plan will indicate what tasks need doing, who needs to do them and when they need to be done by.
