Working in partnership

The ihAg team are here to do the best we can to support people facing the possibility of losing the place they call home, and those who have already done so.

We know both situations can have a devastating impact on every aspect of a person's life. Whilst we can offer some practical solutions, we recognise we can not address this situation alone, and partnership working is the key to providing the wrap-around support people need during such a traumatic time.

Whether you are looking for resources for someone you support, a service to refer to or information to help you give the best support you can, ihAg is able to help.

If you’re working with someone who is at risk of losing their home due to personal circumstances, unhealthy coping strategies or behaviour, we can help you support them. We provide advice on the Homeless Reduction Act, Local Authority duties and how to make a Homeless Application.

Please speak with a member of the Advice Team, in the first instance.

We believe in the strength of partnership working to support those in your care. We are happy to be involved in a meeting of professionals to help create support plans and will work with you to consider making a safeguarding referral if appropriate.

To find out how the Advice Team can help you, please call 01473 232426 or enquire online here.

If someone is 'sofa surfing' in your home, living in their car or you are caring for someone you know is at risk of homelessness, we can help. Our Outreach team regularly provide care packages and offer practical advice and solutions to individual circumstances.

Please call 01473 232426 to arrange an individual appointment to talk through what you need.

Homeless and living in a car
Homeless becomes home cutting paper

D contacted our Advice Hub after her release from prison. With the Covid-19 figures rising, her friends no longer felt comfortable with her sleeping on their sofa.

With support from ihAg and other agencies, D continues to rebuild her life.

With the Cost of Living Crisis continuing to impact every household, and funding cuts affecting statutory and voluntary services, there has never been a time where "doing more for less" has been so important.

Demand for our support services contines to grow, and we are committed to working with as many local agencies, companies, and business people to raise awareness of these issues, and the support we can all offer to local people who are struggling.

If you interested in partnering with us, please do get in contact with our CEO; We can provide awareness raising sessions, and discuss better ways to work together.
