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 support teams are 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 mental health and wellbeing, substance misuse and criminal justice.

As part of our wellbeing programme, we offer support and organise acitivities and events for our residents, to promote health mental, physical and emotional wellbeing, and diminish stigma and discrimination. We work closely with partners to offer services to ensure residents recieve the best care possible, and help residents to access health screenings on-site.
