Our work

Our main work in the UK helps homeless people and recovering addicts. Volunteers are involved in most aspects of service delivery and work together with our expert staff. We also mobilize volunteers to work within their local communities supporting local needs.

Our international development work is focused on a wide range of the UN"s Sustainable Development Goals which are the internationally recognized priority areas for development.

Homeless services

The Two Step programme works with single homeless people who are the lowest priority for Local

The ‘Two Step’ programme typically helps around 25 single homeless people to find suitable accommodation every month. We work in partnership with night shelters, day centres, councils and other charities that refer people to us.

We specialise in helping people find housing in the private rented sector. We provide three hours of interactive tenancy training every week. This training empowers people to check that a property is up to standard and explains rights and responsibilities. We can also refer people to supported housing and hostels.

In 2017-18, we received 1,019 referrals to our service. Of those referred, 538 were assessed and given advice and 264 people were housed in accommodation with our direct assistance. A further 49 found accommodation after receiving advice, guidance or support from us. We provided our tenancy training to 230 people in 2017-18.

Recovery services

The ODAAT programme (One Day At A Time) helps substance misusers to live in abstinent recovery. It has a capacity of 23 spaces in the recovery houses and provides a holistic approach to their recovery that includes a combination of therapies over six months. These include psychotherapy, one-on-one and group counselling, anger management, access to sport, peer support, life skills training, family therapy and work experience – in preparation for settled independent living.

At the end of the six months, service users can take advantage of 12 weeks of aftercare and some access our work-training programme that can lead to NVQs in Health and Social Care at level 2 or 3.

When leaving the six month residential programme, residents also have the option to enter our third stage supported houses, which currently have a capacity of 20 beds as well.

Volunteering

Volunteering is important to this work, whether as street outreach, trainee counsellors or floating supports, or as office volunteers. In addition, many volunteers take part in fundraising events and community volunteer days.
