Daniel recently finished accessing Cedar’s Floating Support service and has achieved a great deal of independence through learning home management skills from his support worker Adam. Daniel was referred to Floating support by his social worker because he was living with his family and wished to move into his own accommodation to live independently for the first time. Daniel, with Adam’s support, was placed on the Northern Ireland Housing Executive housing list and subsequently allocated a flat.

Daniel has worked with Adam to learn shopping, cooking and cleaning skills and he has developed skills to organise his budget and pay bills independently. This means Daniel can manage his home self-sufficiently which in turn provides the opportunity for him to volunteer three days a week for charity called ‘Cancer Lifeline’.

It has been brilliant to see Daniel go from strength to strength and we would like to congratulate him on reaching his goals.

What is Floating Support? 

Cedar’s Floating Support team assists adults living in their own home to carry out their housing responsibilities as independently as possible by tailoring a programme to suit their individual needs.

All services are focused on the goals of the person and based on partnership working with them, their families and other health professionals. The programme is tailored to suit each individual. Time is spent initially to design and agree a personal Support Plan. Typically, support is up to 6 hours per week over 6 - 9 months.
