We support people with more than housing.
We offer a range of support services:
We have three projects to support young homeless people into permanent accommodation:
Swan Lane – short-term supported accommodation in a 24 hour staffed hostel with access to supported move on accommodation for single people aged 16 – 22.
Hollinbank House – provides emergency direct access temporary accommodation with support for young homeless people (aged 16-25). It is staffed 24 hours a day.
Lavender Croft – comprises 14 fully-furnished flats for young, single, homeless people with support needs who are able to live semi-independently. Priority is given to tenants moving on from Hollinbank House. It is a short-term service that aims to prepare people for moving on to live independently.
Domestic violence is a pattern of controlling and aggressive behaviour by one person to another in an intimate or family relationship. If it is happening to you, you do not have to deal with it alone. We provide two services.
North Kirklees Women’s Refuge – we can provide you with safe and secure accommodation with support if you have to leave your home.
A support worker can visit you in your home – or if this isn’t safe they can meet you at a local cafe, library or other place of safety for you and the support worker.
If you are experiencing domestic violence from someone in your home – we can advise and help to take action under your tenancy agreement.
We have one sheltered housing scheme – Hawthorn Mill.
Hawthorn Mill Hidden Memories Dementia Café
Our Hidden Memories Café is at Hawthorn Mill. Run in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society, the café serves up more than just hot drinks. Visitors can make new friends and join in activities specially designed to spark memories – such as creating ‘life scrapbooks’ and listening to old vinyl on the café’s record player. The café runs from 12pm to 1.45pm on the first Thursday of every month and welcomes anyone experiencing dementia or caring for someone who is.
In Kirklees we are part of the Kirklees Better Outcomes Partnership (KBOP) which has been commissioned by Kirklees Council to provide floating support services to Kirklees residents.
We can provide support to a wide range of client groups including people who are experiencing domestic abuse, mental health problems, young single people who are either homeless or at risk of homelessness.
The majority of the support is provided on a floating support basis but we do also provide supported accommodation units for those clients experiencing issues with their mental health.
A city-wide housing support service.
