People become homeless for a whole range of complex and overlapping reasons. To support this need, we offer a variety of housing and support options - in partnership with local authorities - for families and single people who are currently or may be faced with homelessness.
Our aim is to provide an enhanced, proactive housing management and support service to residents in our designated temporary housing accommodation. This may be in shared houses with others, self-contained flats in cluster accommodation or individual properties dispersed in the community.
We support residents to address any housing related needs and work towards suitable move-on opportunities in line with their individual personal housing plan.
Helping someone out of homelessness is often about more than putting a roof over their head.
Our service is delivered with key partners and is designed to help people develop the emotional and practical skills they need to maintain a tenancy and move into more mainstream housing. This can include support with health needs (including mental health, drug and alcohol use), managing benefits and debt, developing daily living skills and accessing education, training and employment.
Working closely with residents and other professionals, we deliver quality support and housing that helps people on their pathway to independence.
We have a successful track record as an active landlord - delivering supported housing across the south of England thanks to our flexible approach and strong partnerships.
Underpinned by the skills and experience of our supported housing team, we support residents who may have complex and varying needs.
However, we don’t do this alone: we work with key partners to provide specialist elements of our service, to deliver the best possible long term outcomes for our residents.
We also know that by working in partnership with other organisations, such as local authorities, we’ll have the biggest impact and make a real difference to more people’s lives.
