Developing homes for evolving social needs
We have a range of services and accommodation to meet the needs of a diverse group of people.
There are groups of people in Cambridgeshire who have specific needs, including those who require additional assistance on a temporary basis, and others who may face long-term barriers to accessing services because of disability, their age, colour, nationality, religious or cultural background.
A major challenge over the coming years will be to satisfactorily house our ageing population, and to help older people remain independent in their own homes.
Examples of people with whom we work include:
- People leaving care
- Teenage parents and other vulnerable single parents
- Vulnerable young people (under 25)
- Offenders (including female offenders and young offenders)
- People at risk from domestic violence
- People who are homeless
- People who are vulnerable because they live in an isolated location
- People living with disabilities and chronic illnesses, including those with AIDS/HIV, mental health problems, learning disabilities and sensory impairment
- Older people
- People from black and minority/ethnic backgrounds
- Gypsy and travellers
- Migrant workers
- Refugees / asylum seekers
- Other vulnerable adults.
