YMCA Roxeth Gate is a short-term supported housing scheme where housing and support are provided as an integrated package.

“We provide supported accommodation because we believe everyone should have somewhere safe to stay”

Our supported housing scheme is designed to help people develop in all aspects of life; mind, body and spirit, enabling people to live as independently as possible within their community, with a real focus on social inclusion.

Support

Support can include managing benefits and debt, how to develop daily living skills, looking for education, training and employment or volunteering, referrals to relevant agencies for mental health, drug or alcohol use and guidance in securing permanent accommodation.

We provide targeted and universal support to single people age 16 and above in housing need, individuals who are homeless, vulnerable and/or at risk, people living with mental illness, learning disabilities or recovering from substance misuse or those who are fleeing domestic violence.

Support Plans are an integral part of each resident stay in the hostel which are put together having carried out an extensive assessment of needs with an allocated Support Worker. These are reviewed on at least a monthly basis with the Support Worker through key working sessions however they can be initiated by the resident at any time.
Support Workers are able to give advice and information on budgeting, accessing appropriate health care, counselling/support groups, training and employment opportunities. Assistance is also given with benefit claims, job search and involvement in social activities both within and outside of the hostel.
