Maria Graves of STEPS home support Service, visiting speaker 26 Jan 2013
On Monday 6th January 2013 our afternoon speaker was Maria Graves from STEPS, the housing support service from East Sussex County Council. (Nothing to do with floating at all!) Maria is the Wealden team leader, working with all sorts of different areas including Adult Social Care, Health and even Children's Services.

'STEPS to stay independent' is a free and confidential housing support service. They aim to increase the opportunities and improve the life chances of vulnerable people in East Sussex; to enable people to live well in their own home.

They have a team who can visit people in their home,, and help them work out what support you personally need to keep living independently, regardless of what kind of accommodation you live in. They can help people with understanding tenancy or mortgage responsibilities, with getting accommodation, help dealing with bills, benefits and budgeting, and help with connecting with services and opportunities in the community.

The contact details for anyone who might need support from STEPS in Wealden, the phone number is 01323 436414.
