We are a partnership of social sector organisations, commissioned by Kirklees Council to support people in our community who face an increased risk of homelessness as a result of their support needs. Our partnership brings together the expertise of all our organisations, allowing us to support people with a range of complex social needs across Kirklees.
Our goal is to help the people using our service to secure or maintain suitable accommodation, to improve their health & well-being, and to develop the skills they need to live independently.
We take a person-centred approach, tailoring our support to the needs of each individual facing homelessness.
To improve long-term well-being, we offer support across four main areas:
We provide support in accessing social and council housing or engaging with private sector landlords to sustain existing tenancies or find new accommodation.
Health & Wellbeing
We work to address physical and mental health conditions including drug and alcohol dependency, helping the people we work with to get the treatment they need and to improve their well-being.
We can support in accessing volunteering opportunities, education or training and offer guidance and support in finding meaningful employment.
Support with domestic violence
We support those experiencing domestic abuse through our specialist domestic violence service. We provide expert support and advice, safety planning and crisis intervention to help keep victims of domestic abuse safe.
