Boaz are currently delivering floating support as part of the Restricted Eligibility Support Service (RESS), in partnership with the Booth Centre, and GMIAU (Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit).
RESS offers person-led support, advice and signposting for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness as a result of their immigration status. The service supports people by offering immigration advice through Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit and floating support through Boaz Trust and Booth Centre.
As part of RESS, Boaz works with people with restricted eligibility from non-EU countries. The term 'restricted eligibility' includes people who have conditions attached to their immigration status that restrict their entitlements to claim benefits and access housing assistance (this can include those referred to as having No Recourse to Public Funds).
Who can access this support?
This service is for Non-UK Nationals with restricted eligibility, and supports people:
- Over the age of 18
- Who are at risk of homelessness or are experiencing homelessness
- Currently located in one of the 10 Greater Manchester boroughs (Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Wigan)
- Who are single or part of a couple (this support service is not suitable for families)
- Who may have an offending history - this is not a barrier to accessing RESS Floating Support
