Who is the project for?
Who do we help?
Single adults who have experience of or are at risk of homelessness. A local connection is required, however there are certain exemptions for people fleeing abuse. Operate a drug and alcohol tolerant policy across most of our properties and also have a dry unit so can be flexible to any additional needs.
