Our hostels are not just bricks and mortar. Alongside having a safe, secure and stable living environment, our staff and volunteers help our clients to work through their issues and to gain the confidence needed to be able to manage and sustain their tenancies in the wider community. This might be through supporting them to find a detox place, semi-independent accommodation or a private rented home.

We have 7 hostels across the North of England and these schemes offer over 300 units of accommodation to single homeless persons, male and female, aged 18 years.

Health & Well-being

We provide four meals a day. The menu is varied, healthy and is seasonally adjusted.

Missing any meal of the day can mean missing out on the recommended daily amounts of essential vitamins and minerals. This can result in poor physical and mental abilities, so we try to promote healthy and balanced diets for all our residents.

Our team of chef/housekeepers try wherever possible to help those residents with strict dietary needs, such as vegetarians, lactose or starch intolerant etc…

In House Training: Cooking and Basic Food Hygiene and Housekeeping

Not only do our team of dedicated chef/housekeepers prepare meals and carry out full housekeeping duties, they also provide domestic skills training for our residents to undertake to help towards preparing them for semi or full independent living.

Our residents will learn how to prepare inexpensive, simple but nutritious dishes and be advised on dietary needs. This training will also include advice on how to store and cook frozen foods safely and how to safely re-heat and store chilled and cooked foods. It also involves personal cleanliness in the kitchen and how to avoid food poisoning and cross contamination.

In addition to the cooking skills, our Chef/Housekeepers raise awareness of general hygiene around the home (such as cleaning a cooker, fridge and microwave and keeping bins and the surrounding areas clean and disinfected), including the understanding and uses of cleaning products and their storage.
