Stafford House

Stafford House trip to Stonehenge

Stafford House provides supported housing for single homeless people with a history of sleeping rough and severe and enduring mental health problems.

There are ten self-contained flats, one emergency bed space, a shared lounge, quiet room, garden and access to computer facilities.

The project offers support via key-work sessions and individualised support.

They also provide advice and support to help people develop stronger independent living skills and engage in daytime activities such as working on a vegetable garden, cooking and crafts sessions and IT training. Residents can live at the project for up to two years, so there is a strong emphasis on positive resettlement into more independent housing as well as a strong focus on education, training, and employment.

There is a worker dedicated to the meaningful use of time. The aim is to explore resident’s dreams and aspirations and help them achieve these through individual sessions and group work both in house and in the wider community. This is an integral part of the support planning.

Staff and residents regularly celebrate cultural events together, such as Christmas, Eid, St Patricks Day and Davila, and get out and about for communal outings, such as a trip to Stonehenge and a Christmassy visit to Winter Wonderland.
