We are a registered charity established in 1998. We are an independent organisation supporting homeless and vulnerably housed individuals and families. Our clients often have complex issues such as mental and physical health problems, learning difficulties, domestic abuse, autism etc and some have simply endured a period of “bad luck”.
We have a proven track record of sourcing safe and secure accommodation both within social housing and the private sector. Our clients are supported, on average, for a twelve month period and our goal is collectively, by working with partners, to work others through their difficult times and therefore assisting local vulnerable people return to independence.
When talking with clients when we are first introduced, there are three common words they use to describe their feelings. These are :-
• ISOLATED • SCARED • INVISIBLE
Our belief is that everyone has a basic right to housing. We therefore do not judge, we are determined to assist the vulnerable into housing and with them, look to improve opportunities to enter into education, volunteering and employment.
By involving the wider community, statutory, non statutory and corporate partners we aim to ensure that our clients no longer feel isolated, scared or invisible.
