Building Resilience for a Better Home

Building Resilience for a Better Home is an exciting new pilot based in Glasgow, Inverclyde, East Ayrshire, North Lanarkshire, and West Lothian.  The project uses a remote based self-help coaching approach to support tenants of Larkfield, Horizon, and Link Housing Associations who are at risk of losing their tenancies due to poor mental health.

What do we do

Building Resilience for a Better Home works alongside the Link’s Money & Wellbeing Project and offers sessions to tenants who are experiencing mental health issues due to financial difficulties.

Building Resilience for a Better Home is a new project which offers free self-help coaching sessions to eligible tenants who are experiencing mental health issues, including anxiety, stress, low mood, depression, and sleep difficulties.  Tenants accessing the service can receive up to nine online sessions with LinkLiving self-help coaches.

Building Resilience for a Better Home is currently covering the Glasgow, Inverclyde, East Ayrshire, North Lanarkshire, and West Lothian areas.

How we can help you

The purpose of the supported self-help sessions is to provide tenants with self-help techniques they can use to manage their mental health, and therefore be in a position where they can better manage their lives, engage with their communities, and keep their homes.

Using a tailored approach, the self-help coaches will introduce tenants to a range of resources, techniques, and tools to better manage their mental health, and can help tenants identify personal outcomes to work towards.  The service will also encourage tenants to connect with other services and sources of support in their community and can signpost tenants to suitable services.

The services can be facilitated online via Microsoft Teams, or by phone call.

How can you get support

The Building Resilience for a Better Home service works with tenants aged 16 and above.  Tenants can be referred by their housing officer, or Debt Advisor through the Money and Wellbeing project.
