    There has been a reported increase in the number of ex-service men and women needing homeless support services in Salford.

    Salford’s Supported Tenancies Service has seen an increase in veterans falling on hard times, reports 24Dash. adult_services.jpg

    Managed by housing association Salix Homes, the service provides support and advice for people in Salford facing homelessness or struggling to maintain their tenancy.

    Nationally, statistics show that 1 in 10 homeless people have a military background.

    Mike Wright, head of housing choice at Salix Homes, said: “Our Supported Tenancies Service helps people from all walks of life, who have for one reason or another fallen on hard times, but we have seen an increase in ex-armed forces personnel requiring our services in Salford.For many leaving the forces, it can be very difficult adjusting to civilian life when you have been used to such a regimented regime. It’s a travesty that men and women who have served their country find themselves in a homeless situation, but we are here to help people get their lives back on track.I would like to remind any ex-forces personnel in Salford that help and support is out there and to get in touch with the Supported Tenancies Service.”

    Responding to the DWP Consultation:  Housing Benefit Reform - Supported Housing

    "It was well-run, in a good location, and very useful.  I've only one suggestion; as the session went on it would perhaps have been useful for bullet points of general agreement about what should be in the sector response to be displayed and added to as the session went on, maybe on a flip chart. Regarding your response paper, I particularly like the answer you give to question 9.  In fact the general: "if it ain't broke don't fix it" response could be pushed harder."
