In order to provide high quality housing services it is essential that all concerned understand and implement the organisation’s policies and procedures. In this way a consistent service can be ensured and the well being of service users and staff safeguarded. Professional boundaries separate professional involvement of supported housing workers from which, however well intentioned, could reduce the benefit of support to service users. Boundaries give each person an equal sense of control in the relationship, sets limits to workers-service user relationships establishing a safe, supportive connection and to the range and type of support provided by the service.
