Caritas Anchor House

Working at the heart of homelessness

One-to-one support

One-to-one support

The Personal Development Team supports our resident group to reclaim their lives by supporting them through any barriers they may have to living independently and becoming an active member of a community.

The team is central to guiding residents through the Caritas Anchor House journey and nurturing a person’s personal development. 

Support often involves:

  • Providing specialist advice and emotional support
  • Referring and sign-posting residents to external support services if necessary
  • Encouraging residents to take part in community activities and develop positive relationships
  • Partnership building with external agencies to develop further support networks for residents
  • Supporting and encouraging a resident’s volunteering activity
  • Supporting and encouraging a residents training and employment activity

When residents arrive at Caritas Anchor House they are assigned a Lifestyle Architect who meets with that resident on a regular basis during keyworking sessions. Within the team we have specialist support provisions for substance misuse, mental health and criminal justice, including a Substance Misuse Lead and a Mental Health Lead.
