Stonham HomeStay Floating Support Service Closure Announced
After ten years of successful delivery of housing-related support to over 25,000 clients, the Stonham HomeStay floating support contract, delivered by Home Group, will close on 30th November 2017. Due to continuing austerity measures, Norfolk County Council agreed recommendations to remove funding from all their existing floating support contracts at their full council meeting on 20th February 2017.

‘We are currently developing an exit plan with Norfolk County Council officers and once this is agreed, we will share the timetable for closure with our partners. Most importantly, we continue to welcome referrals for new clients and expect to continue taking new referrals until at least early August 2017. We will confirm the date when referrals will no longer be accepted at a later date. We also want to thank all our wonderful partners, stakeholders and referring agencies who have supported and engaged with us over the years. We have really valued the relationships we have developed and look forward to working with you in the future to care and support the most vulnerable people in the county to build their resilience and independence.’
Jo Huxtable, Head of Client Services, Norfolk and Suffolk.
