Support for Homeless People

Page last updated: 25 August 2020

Sheltered council housing allows tenants to live independently, whilst having the added security of knowing that someone is available to help in an emergency 24-hours-a-day. 

There are sheltered schemes throughout the East Riding offering different services and with different facilities.

Help is available 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, 365-days-a-year by using the two-way internal intercom system in all sheltered properties. Residents of sheltered schemes may still need the help and support of friends and relatives, our Welfare Support Workers cannot replace this vital support.

If you are a pensioner or disabled we can help you look at the options for moving to more suitable accommodation. We can provide practical help when you move, and if you are in receipt of a means-tested benefit we can provide financial help towards the costs of moving.
