Homelessness and temporary accommodation

Providing temporary accommodation for young people and families

Supported housing

Families

We provide temporary, affordable housing to families together with support tailored to their needs so they can eventually move into permanent housing.

It is our priority to equip residents with the skills they need to live independently, to realise their potential, and to live a safe, healthy, and participative lifestyle.

Who is this service for?

For families, couples or expectant parents with low-to-medium level support needs who are homeless or under threat of homelessness.

How do we help?

Besides providing each family with a self-contained flat, we offer a confidential needs assessment and support plan for each resident. We also provide advice on benefits, budgets, emotional well-being, basic living and parenting skills, and information on education, training, and housing. We plan with families how to move on to permanent accommodation.

Each flat is furnished with carpets, curtains, beds, a wardrobe, a fridge, a cooker, and a chest of drawers. Communal facilities include a living room, laundry facilities, private car parking, and an on-site children’s nursery.
