Medway's vision for Housing Related Support (HRS) is to improve the quality of life of vulnerable socially excluded people living in the borough through the delivery of preventative housing support services and to make Medway a place where people are able to achieve their potential for independent living.

Housing Support for vulnerable and socially excluded people in Medway has 3 identified overarching aims. These are:

• Delivering independence and preventing homelessness: this is through providing housing support in Supported Housing, or through Floating Support, giving people the opportunity to stabilise their lives and move on.
• Creating opportunities: this is through offering vulnerable and socially excluded people experiencing and/or threatened with homelessness, the chance to improve their outcomes and increase their independence.
• Providing effectively managed services and value for money: This is through delivering high quality, strategically relevant services that are well managed, cost effective, work well with other support and care services, and put service users at the heart of service delivery.
