Introduction to Service

Whitehead Street offers up to a one-year supported accommodation programme tailored to suit the needs of people experiencing street homelessness, mental health issues, substance misuse and offending.

Our aim is to provide intensive support with weekly sessions to identify and address any needs these people may have, removing barriers which may prevent the achievement and sustainability of their goals.

We support our people to adjust back into the community and develop positive relationships in their local area, alongside fostering key living skills that will aid their move towards independent living.

Our team are on hand to support in all areas that they may require support, eg attending appointments, claiming maintenance of benefits and registering with a local GP.
