Help us Reduce Homelessness

 

We operate a wide range of support for people impacted by homelessness across the Liverpool City Region and North Wales. Our services are continually developing, as we look for the most effective ways to support people out of homelessness and set them up with the skills to sustain tenancies, access training and employment and build a positive support network. With your support, we can add to the support our services provide and help people develop the skills they need to access employment and sustain tenancies. 

 

The services we provide support a large variety of individuals. In Merseyside we run Supported Lodgings Services (Wirral, Liverpool, Sefton & Knowsley), Homeground Hostel, AIMS, Sports Horizons and resettlement Passport. 

In North Wales we run Supported Lodgings and Nightstop services (Flintshire, Denbighshire & Conwy), Plas Bellin and Sunraye.

 

 

 

Supported Lodgings

Supported Lodgings provides homeless young people Aged 16-21 with family style accommodation. Young people are accommodated with registered ‘Householders’ in their homes, they have their own room and share the kitchen and bathroom facilities. Alongside the support provided by the Householder, our support workers are there to help the young person develop independent living skills, and help them access further training, education or employment.

The family environment provided in Supoorted Lodgings is really beneficial for young people, for whom staying in a hostel wouldn't be appropriate.

Young Person's Hub

Launched this year the Young Person's hub brings together our current services working with young people in Liverpool, providing an 'all in one place' service.

The hub houses a number of support services focussed on helping young people to build resilience, raise their aspirations and achieve their goals. The aim of the hub is to be more than just somewhere for young people to go in and sit with support workers, with it's daily breakfast club it provides a more relaxed setting so that young people chose to come in when in crisis. 

Our AIMS mentoring service, Liverpool Supported Lodgings, and Sports Horizons projects are based in the hub. These services all come together within the Hub to offer an ‘everything in one place’ style delivery within a friendly atmosphere and a comprehensive skills programme including employability and work skills, tenancy readiness via our Resettlement Passport course, a personal development programme and individual mentoring.
