Supported Housing Team

Providing short-term supported accommodation to people who are under threat of being homeless.

Who we are

The Supported Housing Team manages eleven properties – 50 individual units – in Coventry to provide short term supported accommodation to asylum seekers, refugees and migrants that face the threat of being homeless. 

Our housing is available for individuals who have leave to remain.

The team also provides specialist support services for vulnerable people with complex support needs.

Our team assists clients with planning positively for their future and to aid the integration process into the UK. This involves case working with residents and providing access to all other services at Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre. With links to other agencies in the city, the team also use this to help residents resolve issues, become independent and consider the next step in their lives.

Please note, to be eligible for supported housing, you will need to have leave to remain and a local connection to Coventry
