We have been providing homelessness services across the Wirral for over 25 years and our work continue continues in this exciting phase of our work. We have recently started a project working with women who have been recently homeless or at continued risk of homelessness. This project is based in a dedicated property, not far from New Brighton area of the Wirral.

The aim of this project is to create a therapeutic environment, where our clients can get the support and opportunities they need to move towards positive long term sustainable lives. This is a joint project, being delivered alongside Wirral Women and Children’s Aid (WWACA). We also have a part time role required in our main support team offering outreach support to homeless men and women across the wider Wirral region. As a result we have decided to recruit a single staff member to work on both projects.

To assist in the provision of effective, high quality support services to vulnerable, homeless men and women who may have needs such as offending behaviour, substance misuse problems, mental health issues and who are vulnerable to rough sleeping, with the aim of promoting independent living.
