How to find support in your area

Supporting People Service Directory

What is the purpose of the directory?
You can search for support in your local area using our online directory. This directory gives you details about housing support services funded by the Supporting People Programme in Northern Ireland. 

What information will the directory give me?
When you search the directory, you will be able to view key details about each service, including:

  • Service and organisation name
  • Amount of housing support units provided
  • Thematic group and primary client group
  • Service type
  • Contact information 
  • Referral routes
  • Service description

To view these details all you need to do is click the service on the Supporting People Directory Map.

How to carry out a search (find a service) 
There are several ways in the Supporting People Service Directory you can carry out a search. 

The “find a service” function can be used by selecting one or multiple categories below:

  • By service 
  • By primary client group
  • By organisation name 
  • By service name 
  • By thematic group 

Other functions like “search by location” can be used to locate services around a specific address or location, by typing it directly into the search bar.

Zoom buttons and pan (click and drag your mouse to pan across the map) can also be used to navigate around the map.

You can find further guidance on using the directory, along with information on where the data comes from and a list of FAQs here:
