Single Person Homeless and Housing Support Services

Sefton Council has joined with neighbouring Council’s to provide a Gateway system to assess, manage and allocate homelessness and housing related support services in the borough.

Gateway to Housing & Support was created to provide improved access to short-term Housing Related Support services for single persons (and couples in some circumstances) within the Liverpool City Region. 

The services listed below are linked to Sefton Mainstay Gateway. You should NOT contact these services directly but refer to the instructions below regarding how to arrange an assessment.

  • SSHG, New Start (Accommodation & support services)
  • SSHG, BOSCO Society (Accommodation & support services)
  • North West Property Custodians - NWPC (Accommodation & support services)
  • Excel Housing (Accommodation & support services)
  • DISC (Accommodation and Floating Support)
  • Venus Support (Floating Support)
  • Light for Life (Housin Advice and Outreach service)
  • CHART (Tenancy Support)
  • Salvation Army (Community services)

Anyone can have an assessment for services within Sefton but priority for these services will be directed at Sefton residents or those with a strong local connection to Sefton so you may wish to consider whether you want to be assessed for Sefton services or not.  The services within Mainstay Gateway for Sefton are accessible via an Assessment.

To access any services linked to the Mainstay Gateway you must complete an assessment form in person at a designated Assessment Point. The Assessment Points are provided by local partner agencies within Sefton.

To access any services linked to the Mainstay Gateway you must contact one of the organisations in the Table below by telephone, and make arrangements to complete an assessment form.
