Individuals who use our emergency services come from all walks of life and from a variety of circumstances that have resulted in homelessness. Our emergency accommodation services benefit from an Assertive Engagement Programme which aims to support service users as much as possible during their short stay in emergency accommodation. The Assertive Engagement worker helps people to identify more suitable longer term accommodation and also supports them in accessing their rights and entitlements.

Our emergency services are:
