Referrals – Men
We work with single homeless people who are un-employed, ex-offenders and those with a history of drug and/or alcohol addiction.
Our aim is to break the vicious cycle of ‘No home, no job’’. This is achieved by providing accommodation and one to one support. We encourage our residents to increase their employability skills by providing:
Short term accommodation
Training and volunteering opportunities
Support to gain employment & pathways to more permanent accommodation
Support in rebuilding their self-confidence and life skills.
We support clients to move on from traumatic past experiences to a much better and brighter future.
We accept referrals from Local Authorities, Advice Centres, Probation Offices, and Religious Organisations. Self-referrals for men’s accommodation will also be considered.
We will always take steps to check the authenticity of any referrals received.
Our criteria for accepting clients for the Men's Projects:
We accept single homeless men:
Aged 18-59 who are actively seeking work.
UC/JSA claimants who are British citizens and those who have a right to reside in this country.
EU Nationals with a right to reside and can claim long term UC/JSA and HB.
Willing to comply with projects aims, ethos and conditions of residence.
We do not accept
Clients who have an active or recent substance or alcohol addiction.
Ex-offenders who have been convicted of arson, violence, sex offences or property convictions.
People who are long term ESA or PIP claimants.
We do accept applications from some ex-offenders, but any offer will be subject to our risk assessment.
