Supported Housing

Homelessness is not just an urban issue.

 Since 2001 when our first accommodation service opened in Hexham we have supported almost 900 homeless and vulnerable adults.

This is just 40% of the referrals we received.

Our Mission

We are here to support vulnerable adults, both those who are homeless and those who may be threatened with homelessness.  We recognise that to have a home is not just about having a roof over one’s head but is a place to feel safe and secure with a sense of stability and ‘belonging’.

By providing a high standard of accommodation and individual support to each person, we help to begin the process of building that self-esteem and providing a feeling of security from the moment an individual enters our service. We are here to help people help themselves.

 You can help us to make a real and positive difference to a homeless individual
