What is Homeless Services?

What is Homeless Services?

Our aim is to provide high quality short-term accommodation together with a dedicated team who provide a visiting support service for people who are faced with homelessness. Our support is to help people through the crisis they face and to prepare them to successfully move on to their own independent tenancies.

We have 20 self-contained flats in total across 2 sites, both of which are both near to local amenities and good public transport links.

  • It is important to us that people feel positive about where they live;
  • At one of our sites is a communal garden with children’s play equipment. 
  • Our accommodation is affordable and eligible for Housing Benefit for people on low incomes.
  • Access to a 24-hour emergency repair contractor.
  • Our communal areas are subject to regular health & safety checks.
  • Support staff are well trained for their role. 

We offer help, guidance and advice such as:

  • Claiming welfare benefits 
  • Help in sorting out debt problems and budgeting 
  • Support and encouragement in career choices and gaining qualifications (e.g. keeping you up to date with where and what courses are available, help with forms, and CVs and accompanying you to appointments) 
  • Keeping you motivated and involved in decision making 
  • Contact other services/ agencies on your behalf
  • Homeless Services Guide
