Homelessness Support

Delivered by Carr Gomm
Note: this service is only for people who are homeless
  • Housing and homelessness

Whilst each person’s support is unique, there are common themes around which people seek support to bring some consistency and stability to their lives:

  • Home building, such as sourcing furniture, understanding tenancy responsibilities, and door management
  • Improving finances and controlling debts, including budgeting, income maximisation and access to welfare support
  • Improving physical and mental health and wellbeing
  • Building positive neighbourly relationships
  • Planning for the future, including increasing circles of support and seeking sustainable employment
  • Building resilience and developing self-help skills

At Carr Gomm, we aim to support each person to develop new skills, enabling them to manage their own lives and home environment, increasing their self-esteem, skill base and well-being.

We achieve this by identifying goals with each person and adopting a “do with” method rather than “do for”; workers model a task or undertake tasks alongside the person, enabling them to learn how to do things safely and independently.
