How we can help
Our members of staff have many years of experience working with people who have experienced homelessness.
We will work with you to identify exactly what services and support you need. This will be agreed in your support plan and regularly reviewed with you.
Our aim is to help you cope with the challenges of facing homelessness. This might include:
- help with finding somewhere to live
- help with practical tasks such as dealing with rent arrears, claiming benefits, taking care of your home
- help with increasing social networks, developing communication and social skills and building relationship with family members
- help with maintaining good mental health and dealing with periods of crisis
- emotional support with ongoing issues such as isolation or low self esteem
- help to manage the negative consequences of involvement in criminal activity
- help maintaining good physical health such as attending doctor, dentist or dealing with addiction
- advice and encouragement to adopt a healthy lifestyle and fostering a positive approach to physical exercise
- help to start or maintain regular activity such as attending classes, progress a hobby or getting involved in volunteering
- help with developing the skills to help you move towards employment
As you can see, these services can be wide ranging and will be very specific to your needs. We expect they will change over time as you achieve the goals you have set in your support plan.
