What is APAC?

APAC is NIACRO’s family of Floating Support services. Floating Support is a flexible, free service that provides housing related support. It aims to help people who are experiencing difficulties in maintaining their tenancy. APAC works to prevent people becoming homeless as a result of anti-social behaviour.

As well as the main Floating Support service, APAC also works with communities experiencing anti-social behaviour in Banbridge in a project funded by the Banbridge Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP). Base2, STEM and Welfare Advice are all part of the APAC family.

APAC is funded by the Supporting People fund through the Northern Ireland Housing Executive.
