Housing Floating Support Service Changes

Published: Wednesday 22 July 2020

South Gloucestershire Council commissions a number of services that provide support for people to manage their housing and live independently. Most are on-going, though some are short term, including the ‘floating support’ service.

The floating support service is currently delivered by an external provider called P3. The Council has a contract with P3 and pays them to deliver the service. This contract is due to end on 31st March 2021 and therefore options for the future of the service are being considered.

For more information on our proposals and to have your say on the changes we are considering, please click on the following link: https://consultations.southglos.gov.uk/consult.ti/FS20/consultationHome
