Potential clients are invited to view the accommodation and encouraged to meet staff before a tenancy sign up date will be discussed . Support workers will review the initial referral and assessment with the client directly, ensuring that it is the most suitable accommodation for the client whilst noting changes to risk and/ or circumstances.
