Essex County Council - Provider Hub
Text size:

Essex County Council (ECC) is dedicated to improving Essex and the lives of our residents.  Our ambition is to deliver the best quality of life in Britain and we will achieve this by providing high quality, targeted services that deliver real value for money.

Mental health issues are widespread, at times disabling, yet often hidden.  People in all walks of life can be affected and for some people their mental health problems impact on their ability to have a settled place to live.

Safe, secure and stable housing is central to people's health and wellbeing, and this is especially so for people coping with mental health issues.

We have been talking to the market for a number of years about our ambitions to change the way these services are delivered.  From 2018, ECC started the process to transform the way it provides care and support for those people who struggle to maintain their accommodation because of a mental health issue.
