WHAT WE DO
We provide supported housing to young people aged 16-25 who are homeless or have a housing need. The support can last for up to 2 years.
Our tenants often come from extremely chaotic situations. Family relationships may have broken down and some may have been forced to sleep rough or have fallen victim to all kinds of exploitation.
Our goal is to provide the support and opportunities they need to start afresh and become valuable, responsible members of the community. Our support team works hard to encourage and motivate our residents to develop their personal skills and to improve their financial situation through education and training. This in time will give them the confidence to sustain and manage their move-on tenancy without intensive support.
The support that we offer includes:
Each resident has a named enablement officer who meets with them regularly. Together they create a support plan, and work towards the resident being ready to move on when they are ready – whether this means moving to a general needs tenancy, returning to family or even going to university.
We have a dedicated team of staff and have someone available for our supported accommodation tenants to speak to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are also assisted by an experienced and knowledgeable board.
We also provide floating support through the Thrive Floating Support service - you can self refer to this by calling 01952 504325.
