Who is eligible for this service?
It is available to anyone, from all communities - single people, couples or families. We are able to support people with a wide range of additional needs including mental health issues and those with alcohol or drug problems.
The service is open to anyone living in East Surrey. Although Parashoot is jointly run by Raven Housing Trust and Active Prospects, you don’t need to live in a home owned and managed by either organisation to receive our support.
How do I get help?
Please talk to a professional/agency who knows you such as your housing provider, GP or Social Care and they can refer you to our service. We are unable to take direct referrals from customers.

How will Parashoot support me?
Parashoot's Housing Support Officers provide support by meeting and assessing individuals needs. They will then write a support plan for you with clear outcomes. Once the plan is in place, Parashoot Support Officers will work with you to achieve these identified outcomes. They will also sign post where necessary and liaise with the third party support provider to ensure the best, and correct, support is given. Any contact from our Support Officers is generally made on a weekly basis and can be made by phone call or personal visit to your home, or a local place that is easy for you to attend. Support is offered for a period of up to six months.
