Over 200 men and women find the space and security they need to grow and heal at our supported accommodation projects each year.
Each of our accommodation projects provide a loving space where the young women can develop new skills, rebuild their confidence, learn how to parent and realise their true worth, but most importantly it’s a place to call home.
“Social services took my sisters and me after my mum left and we were being neglected by our father. When I first came to the project I was shy and thought “why do I need to talk to staff, why do they have to know my story”? But staff were patient and kind and I learned to trust them. They taught me how to manage my tenancy, to speak by myself to sort out my benefits and to ask for help when I needed it rather than ignoring things. I am very grateful to all the staff for guiding me and supporting me. “
