Mental illness or impairment

Approaching the council Three Rivers District Council’s Housing service will ensure early identification of housing problems that takes place to hopefully prevent you from becoming homeless. This will be achieved through partnership work and multi-agency working to prevent you from becoming homeless, through the necessary support intervention you may require.

On the basis that you are suffering from a mental illness or impairment this council could well accept that you are vulnerable and therefore in “priority need” for accommodation. This will be determined by your personal circumstances.

Three Rivers District Council will continuously review the advice and advocacy services available to you, and develop outreach support services according to your needs through the Personal Housing Plan that will be completed in partnership with you and potentially your advocate.

Three Rivers District Council’s Housing service will attempt to provide you with access to main stream healthcare services.

Front-line workers within the Housing service with structured mental health training, support and supervision, with access to advice and guidance from specialist services, will provide a more in-depth support to you.
