Supported Housing Strategy Consultation

Have your say on supported housing in Trafford.

At Trafford Council, we know that having the right home can have a big impact on your quality of life and that maintaining independence is important to everyone, especially if you have support needs. With that in mind, we’re working to ensure all Trafford residents with support needs have access to safe and suitable accommodation that promotes independence and wellbeing.

To help us achieve this, we need to know what our residents want in terms of supported accommodation. By sharing your views, you can help us develop a plan for supported housing in Trafford that is inclusive and diverse, and shaped by the desires of our residents.

This consultation will open on the 20 September 2021 and remain live for four weeks until midnight on the 17 October 2021.

Resident survey

Supported accommodation is a type of housing that is provided alongside support, supervision or care to help people live as independently as possible within the community.

If you have support needs, live in supported accommodation, or are considering a move into supported accommodation in the future, we’d love to hear from you.

This is your chance to influence:

  • supported housing services within Trafford;
  • the type of accommodation on offer to people who have support needs;
  • the amount of supported accommodation that is built;
  • where in the borough supported accommodation is built.

To share your views, please complete our online survey by visiting the link below. If you have any questions about the survey, need it in another format or language, or need help to fill it in please contact Housing.Strategy@trafford.gov.uk or call 07790 368222.

Stakeholder survey

As well as listening to the views of residents and customers, we’d also love to hear from professionals and stakeholders that are familiar with the supported housing portfolio in Trafford. If you work in an organisation that provides, refers into, or is associated with supported housing or support services in Trafford please complete our Stakeholder Survey.

This survey forms part of the consultation to assist Trafford Council in the development of a Supported Housing Strategy that is inclusive and diverse, and reflective of the demands within our borough.
