Roland Williams - Service Lead – Housing Support
About the Service
Pathways Home is a Housing Support service operating in all areas of West Sussex, jointly funded through West Sussex County Council and the seven Local Authorities in West Sussex.
Services are accessed through the Housing Needs Teams at the relevant District or Borough Council and are aimed at people aged 18 + who need housing support to sustain independent living or prevent homelessness.
The support offered is responsive to people’s changing needs and builds on their strengths, allowing them to move along a pathway to independence.
The providers of Pathways Home services will work collaboratively with other organisations such as Housing, Health and Social Care, in order to meet a person’s support needs.
Current providers of Pathways Home are:
- Southdown Housing Association in Adur, Crawley, Horsham and Worthing
- Stonepillow in Chichester
- Peabody South East Limited in Mid Sussex
- Sanctuary Housing Association in Arun

In Adur & Worthing and Horsham, we are also delivering the service in partnership with Turning Tides to include a Befriending & Mentoring service.
