Our accommodation service was opened in 2001, an end terrace property adapted to provide hostel type accommodation with basic sleeping, washing and cooking facilities for up to five people and staff accommodation.
Keeping People Safe
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused all of us to make huge changes to our daily lives, particularly the need to stay at home and limit contact with others.
COVID-19 is even more frightening for those who have no home, are inappropriately housed or like those living in our supported accommodation, must share their home with others.
Many have compromised immune systems due to underlying conditions related, or contributing to, their homelessness. The virus adds another layer of vulnerability to those already vulnerable.
We have continued to deliver our service and to do all we can to keep everyone well, safe and supported.
We have ensured that everyone in our service has had the opportunity to receive their vaccination and have introduced weekly testing for residents and testing prior to starting work for all our support staff.
Systematic cleaning of all surfaces, door handles, light switches, hand rails, laundry, etc. continues, as does the recommendation to wear a face covering and adhere to social distancing within the service.
Access to the house remains restricted to residents and support staff only. We have not yet reintroduced our drop-in service but telephone or e-mail support is still available (see contact us for further information).
More than ever people need the help of our support staff and we are doing all we can to ensure we are there for them, to listen, to help and to reassure.
The situation remain challenging, particularly as we move towards opening our new 13 bed accommodation service.
Please donate, and help ensure our future and the future of the homeless and vulnerable individuals who need our help.
