Users

The people that access our services are unique, their stories are often complex. Our aim is to assist people ‘back on their feet’ and to become active positive members of the community.

Many of our service users have suffered trauma in their lives, finding themselves in intolerable and seemingly hopeless situations. We can help.

We work together with people who were, are or at risk of becoming homeless, or who live in vulnerable private/public sector tenancies.  Any issues that prevent service users living their lives to their full potential are made considerably worse by becoming homeless. We seek to prevent problems spiralling out of control by timely and sensitive preventative actions.

Many of our clients are in vulnerable tenancies, homelessness is a spectre that looms over these properties and there are implications Citywide for hostels and other provision if these tenancies fail.
