We support our clients by providing:

  • Short term accommodation facilities at the Geoff Burton House for 40 men at any one time, to helping them get back on their feet and to move back into the community.
  • Social support from our Social Care team, including Life Skills training.
  • Ablution facilities from 07h30 – 10h00 every weekday, where clients can shower and wash their clothes. (This will be reinstated once COVID-19 lockdown has been lifted).
