FCHO are supporting the National Housing Federation #StartsatHome day.
The campaign looks at securing the future of supported and sheltered housing following Government proposals to make cuts to these services. Supported and sheltered housing play a large role in the health and wellbeing of many of our customers and the residents of Oldham. This includes supporting elderly customers to remain independent in their homes, working with vulnerable and young people, improving neighbourhoods & communities and encouraging customers to start /return to training,education and employment.
You can read our case study on a customer that was helped via our Independence Service to remain independent in his home.
