Resident Support Services

Support and Advice for Residents

Our flexible support is a free, short term service for residents aged 18 years and over who live within the Blaby District. It is tailored to the needs of each individual. We work with people in their own homes and out in the community, at convenient times to suit them. The Floating Support Service is provided by the Resident Support Team, who are based at the Council Offices in Narborough.
