Community Moves provides accommodation and support to help people ‘move on’ from temporary, supported accommodation.

Clients of the service are offered a 12 month temporary tenancy with Southdown alongside support to find permanent accommodation, maintain a tenancy and to live independently.

Coronavirus Statement (30 July 2020)

A message to our clients:

During these uncertain times we would like to reassure you that we are still operating and are here to support you.

We are adhering to the social distancing advice set out by the government. This means that we will be offering telephone support rather than face-to-face support until further notice.

If you are a current client of this service, your worker will be in regular contact with you by telephone.

In the meantime, if you have any urgent questions about your support, please contact Roland Williams by calling 07827 968840 or emailing roland.williams@southdown.org

We would like to wish you and your family well and we will update this page when our telephone support model changes.

Information for referrers:

Brighton & Hove City Council’s Commissioning Team will be taking over management of all voids and referrals to supported accommodation during the COVID-19 response. The current waitlist will be frozen and only those who are currently rough sleeping will be referred to any current or future vacancies. New referrals should be for current rough sleepers and should be sent to commissioning.team@brighton-hove.gov.uk

This is an evolving situation and we will adapt to emerging need as this develops, and keep you updated on our service offer and operation.

If you have any queries, please feel free to get in touch with Roland Williams to discuss by calling 07827 968840 or emailing roland.williams@southdown.org

How the service works

Once a client is referred to the service, they will be allocated temporary accommodation. They will also be assigned a named Support Officer who will provide one to one support to address issues that may be preventing them from successfully living independently, for example, budgeting, engaging with landlords and managing correspondence. A range of workshops is also available for clients to attend on areas including, money, employment and finding and keeping accommodation.

Clients are required to actively look for suitable independent accommodation during their time with the service.

Eligible applicants

Referrals to the service come via the Supported Housing Panel at the Brighton and Hove City Council.
