If you live in Tendring and you are at risk of homelessness or are experiencing homelessness, we can help.
The Health Advocate will work with you to address health inequalities. We will support you to register with GPs, attend health appointments, find out more about additional housing services and provide an independent voice.
SUMMIT provides Advocates to people living in Tendring and Colchester who may need some support, with the aim of helping you keep your tenancy.
We will support you to access appropriate trauma support, mental and physical health access, as well as appropriate professional support via statutory or voluntary services.
You will not be simply signposted to other agencies - we will be there with you every step of the way. We want to empower you to identify the skills and support you may need to remain in a tenancy, such as being provided with appropriate training and learning to gain skills such as; eat healthily on a budget, cook, clean, access support, with the goal of moving towards sustainable community engagement.
