Booth House offers more than a bed. Life is about purpose and relationships; we will offer the opportunity for both in a safe, supportive and challenging environment.
We accommodate men and women experiencing homelessness with low to medium support needs. We work with them to identify their needs to achieve independent living.
Of course you may know someone who has been experiencing homeless. You may have experienced it yourself. You may be sofa surfing, one of the hidden homeless, or rough sleeping now. We are here to provide the support and opportunity you need.
Our services are broadly split into 4 areas:
- Accommodation and resettlement
- Social enterprise - Recycles and The Sandwich People
- Spiritual (All faiths and beliefs)
- Learning and development
Booth House is a place of change, a place of work where we offer support to people experiencing homelessness to lead independent, full and useful lives. We offer a range of activities that help build self esteem, relationships and develop a sense of purpose and drive. Our aim is to offer “Challenge and Choice” in supporting you, giving you more control over how, when, and what support is provided.
We have five emergency rooms providing up to three nights accommodation. After that, clients may return at 2.00pm on a daily basis. If available further accommodation may be offered. During this time we can offer support to claim benefits, register with a GP, or signpost to other agencies such as the Council. If a room becomes available in the resettlement centre, the client may be offered that room dependent on their needs and the needs of others.
The maximum stay in the main centre is 2 years. We also operate a waiting list; clients need to provide contact details and we will try to contact them, again prioritising individual need.
Social enterprise creates opportunities for people who have experienced homelessness to turn their lives around, recognise their full potential, learn and develop enabling them to transform their own lives.
Creating new social networks and shared targets for the future, we develop a purpose in which we can work together to achieve an exciting and sustainable future for the business and the individual.
Through work experience, confidence building, social activities, qualifications and skills development, our social enterprises equip people to move forward into independent living and further opportunities within the community.
