Our visiting support services are available whether you live in a Connect home, rent from another landlord, own your home, or are staying with a friend.
We will work with you to help prevent you becoming at risk of homelessness, maintain your home, sustain your tenancy and live independently.

The Kirklees Better Outcomes Partnership
We are part of the Kirklees Better Outcomes Partnership, or KBOP.
KBOP is a partnership of specialist agencies supporting people in our community who face an increased risk of homelessness.
We take a person-centred approach, tailoring support so that it meets an individual’s hopes and goals.
We offer support across four main areas:
- Housing – accessing housing and talking to landlords to sustain existing tenancies or find new accommodation
- Health and wellbeing – addressing physical and mental health, including drug and alcohol dependency, helping to access treatment and improve wellbeing.
- Education, training and employment – finding volunteering opportunities, education or training and guidance and helping people find meaningful employment
- Support with domestic abuse and violence – providing expert support and advice, safety planning and crisis intervention to help keep victims of domestic abuse safe.
