Intensive Housing Management (IHM)
What is IHM?
Stay’s IHM service provides accommodation for people who, for whatever reason, find themselves homeless or potentially homeless and who may find it difficult to access or maintain mainstream housing.
The service provides temporary accommodation for people who are able to manage a tenancy/licence with some housing support. If applicants have needs in addition to their housing, we can also make a referral for floating support or to other agencies that might be able to assist.
You will be fully involved in all stages from the planning to the delivery of a flexible Tailored Support Plan to achieve your aspirations.
What can we offer?
IHM offers a range of housing management services and will discuss each individual’s tenancy management needs with them on a one to one basis.
Intensive Housing Coaches are available throughout the day. When an individual signs up for a tenancy/licence agreement, they will be allocated an Intensive Housing Coach who will work with them to develop a housing plan and help during an individuals time with us. They will also be the first point of contact with Stay, and will help co-ordinate any other services an individual may need.
During the night time, our Mobile Night Concierge service is available to make sure everything is safe and secure and assist with any problems.
