Providing homes and creating sustainable communities

Support and wellbeing

You're at the heart of everything we do

We want you to feel supported and be happy in your home. We have a range of wellbeing and support services for you to use, whenever you need them.

Covid-19

As lockdown restrictions ease, we’re pleased to say we’re beginning to reopen our housing and repair services. We want to reassure you that we are taking careful and considerate steps to ensure both our tenants and staff are safe. We appreciate this is a difficult time, but we’re here to listen, support and advise where we can.

Your safety and wellbeing

It's our duty to make sure the people in our homes and communities are safe. That's why we’ve put together a library of useful links that you might find helpful, whether you need help now or simply want to know what’s available to you as a Victory Homes tenant. Remember, your County Council website will also be able to provide more information on safeguarding concerns.

If we’re unable to directly help you, we can point you in the direction of someone who can. Find information about what we can offer, along with links to other support services, on topics such as mental health and substance abuse on our Safety & Wellbeing page.

Domestic abuse

Everyone should feel safe in their home. Here you can find out who to contact if you, or someone you know, is experiencing domestic abuse. Learn more about how we will support you and which agencies we work with. You are not alone.

Hopestead

Hopestead aims to prevent people from becoming homeless, and can support any of our tenants who might be facing homelessness. Take a look at the range of initiatives available to you – from money saving schemes, to free courses in budgeting and managing your tenancy.

Money Management

We know life isn’t always straight forward, so if you are experiencing difficulties paying your rent, please let us know as soon as you can. We are here to help.

You might qualify for help towards your rent through housing benefits, and local authority grants may be available if you need additional support.

Helpful resources

Sometimes, when it comes to keeping your home in tip-top condition, you might need a helping hand. Working in partnership with Flagship Services, we’ve put together a library of how-to guides, useful tips and practical advice for maintaining your home, inside and out.

Adapting your home for your needs

If you, or a member of your household, is disabled, you may be able to have your home adapted to suit your needs. For this to happen, an assessment would need to be carried out by your County Council (the Social Services authority) and a recommendation made.

Don’t worry, we’re here to help you identify who you need to contact to get an assessment. And we'll support you to access the right services to meet your needs. Also, we can provide you with minor adaptations to your home such as fitting grab rails.

Just get in touch with us.

Community Skills

Here you’ll find free information, advice, and guidance if you are wishing to improve your skills and opportunities. The Community Skills team can help you prepare for an interview, brush up on your digital skills or find volunteering opportunities.

Additional support needs

Sometimes, small changes at home can make the biggest difference. For example, if you have poor mobility and need more time to answer the door, we can make sure our staff and trusted contractors know to allow extra time after knocking. To let us know about any additional support needs, all you have to do is fill out this form.
