The Bermondsey Project provides temporary supported housing for single homeless people with a history of rough-sleeping and serious mental health problems.


There are 30 self-contained flats across three sites Aberdour Court, Roseberry Street and

Galleywall Road.


Of these, 20 are self-contained studio flats with communal lounge, laundry, wi-fi, kitchen and office facilities. There are also ten, one bedroom flats with communal facilities and staff offices.Two flats are fully adapted for wheelchair users.


Each resident has an allocated key worker who helps coordinate the support provided by staff and external services.

 

Residents are encouraged to get involved in all areas of their care and to draw up a list of goals which will form part of their individual support plan.


Staff run cookery and art classes, which are well attended. The maximum length of stay at the Bermondsey Project is two years.

Assessment

An assessment of residents' needs is carried out during the first four weeks of their stay. This will cover all aspects of their life and will form the basis of an individual support plan.

Reviews

Reviews take place at least every six months to assess progress and ensure that the individual’s needs are being met.

Keywork

Key workers form residents’ main point of contact within the project. The key worker will help the resident take up any benefits they are entitled to and work with them to find appropriate move-on accommodation.

The projects operate a waiting list and people will be assessed on their individual needs and suitability.
