Advertisement Details

The Shetland Islands Council’s ‘Housing Support Shetland’ is a regulated Housing Support Service. Housing Support Shetland is registered with the Care Inspectorate to deliver Housing Support to adults in line with National Care Standards and statutory legislative requirements.

Housing Support Services as prescribed by The Housing (Scotland) Act 2001 (Housing Support Services) Regulations 2002 aim to develop or sustain an individual’s ability and capacity to live independently in their own accommodation. Legislation on housing support regulations accompany a statutory housing support duty introduced on 1 June 2013, through which local authorities must assess the housing support needs of homeless applicants to whom they have a duty to secure settled accommodation. Housing support enables vulnerable people to maintain their tenancies, avoid repeat homelessness, and live independent, fulfilling lives in their communities.
