Homelessness Prevention

‘We have supported a service user move into a private tenancy in Ashton and hooked him up with a local floating support service to help him settle.  He starts work next week at stagecoach; another happy customer!

‘Just completed an emotional health workshop with 3 of our men from Halsall house, one of the guys said he always leaves our workshops with a more positive attitude and outlook on things!  Thanks for the feedback it’s nice to know we are having an impact’

‘One of our service users has moved into a Rochdale Borough Housing property.  Exciting times!  We were able to deliver a bed and a sofa to her new address.  This was very gratefully received; she would have had to sleep on the floor, thanks Sanctuary Storehouse!

‘The Crisis Project is really taking off.  In 6 months we have improved 55 service users health outcomes, 57 service user life skills outcomes, 55 service users social network outcomes, 57 service users resettlement outcomes and 46 service users vocational outcomes.   What a result!
