About Action Housing
Over the last fifteen years, we have developed our services and our remit to work with a variety of complex and specialist groups of vulnerable people: such as those with substance misuse, mental illness, victims of abuse, and young people. In addition to helping people secure and maintain accommodation, we also facilitate personal development; access to other services and opportunities; support and opportunity to find meaningful occupation, and overall to help people change their lives for the better: reducing the cycle of hopelessness, risky behavior, and homelessness.
Action’s ethos is to work holistically with each individual customer. We consider their strengths and aspirations, involve them in decisions and ensure that they lead in the development of their support plans. We always aim to work in partnership with other agencies, seeking to minimise the disruption and intrusiveness of repeated interventions and information gathering, whilst ensuring customer safety.
About Action's history
SUPPORTING VULNERABLE GROUPS
Action was founded in 1977 by a group of staff from South Yorkshire Probation Service who recognised that a significant proportion of offenders have vulnerabilities and housing-related needs that contribute to their offending behavior. Our original services involved the provision of housing and support for ex-offenders in order to provide a platform for a different, more stable way of life and therefore reduce recidivism.
During 2011, we became a Registered Provider of Social Housing with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA). We, therefore, have a growing portfolio of housing stock that directly benefits our client group with housing opportunities.
