Caritas Anchor House

Working at the heart of homelessness

One-to-one support

One-to-one support

We work with our residents to improve their lives by supporting them through barriers they may have to living independently and becoming an active member of a community.

Our Personal Development is central to guiding residents through the Caritas Anchor House journey and nurturing a person’s personal development. The team work with each individual in their journey from homelessness into independent living, and look at areas relating to:

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 Keyworker 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.
