What we do
The Rough Sleeper Housing programme provides self-contained flats for up to two years with a support worker to individuals who have a history of rough sleeping. This enables them to make the difficult transition from the streets into their own accommodation. Our service offers a high level of floating support to over 50 tenants.
We offer wraparound support ranging from having a cup of tea and a catch-up, to helping tenants to manage their tenancies. We provide support with:
- drug, alcohol, and mental health issues
- building links helping individuals integrate into the wider community
- signposting to training and work opportunities in order to make the change needed to help tenants gain confidence and move forward with their lives.
To be eligible for this service a person must:
- have been sleeping rough or be at risk of rough sleeping
- have identified support needs that show they are unlikely to manage a tenancy without additional support.
