Who we can support
The Bristol Floating Support service is for 16-21 year olds.
22-24 year olds may still be referred to the service if they have complex needs or have a strong preference for the service.
We can not accept clients with dependent children (living with them) as there is a specialist service for them (Bristol Young Parents Alliance (BYPA) www.placesforpeople.co.uk)
We typically support people with things like resettlement, prevention of homelessness, accessing more appropriate accommodation and any other relevant issues which prevent them from becoming homeless.
How we decide who to support
The first thing we do when someone is referred to us is make an assessment to see if we are the best service for them. If we feel another agency would better suit support needs, we'll help link in with them too.
Advice and Assistance will be offered to all young people who are referred and those who need ongoing support will be allocated a Support Worker to coordinate their support plan.
