SUPPORT
The Haringey Phoenix Group offers support and practical solutions to help its members manage their lives and maintain as much independence as possible. One to one support is offered to some of the most vulnerable of these people. This can range from form-filling and reading correspondence through to giving emotional support and dealing with housing or benefit issues. In all cases, the main objective is to support members and help them to remain independent in their own homes.
