Depaul’s Castlehill service opened in 2009 in partnership with Radius Housing to help address the growing homelessness issue in the Dungannon/Mid-Ulster area.
Castlehill has 22 self-catering apartments, 6 that are suitable for couples. The service offers 24/7 support, for people experiencing homelessness. Our professionally trained staff work to (low threshold) high support and harm reduction principles, meaning they support people in a flexible way. In line with Depaul’s values, staff support service users to make positive choices and help them achieve their potential.
During each person’s stay, they are supported to find suitable long-term accommodation. There is a dedicated Resettlement Worker who works with service users during their journey out of homelessness. This support continues in the community when housing is secured to ensure tenancy sustainment.
Castlehill is based in the centre of Dungannon. However, Castlehill’s Resettlement Worker supports individuals who have been placed in their own accommodation in the wider mid-Ulster area.
Castlehill is run in conjunction with Radius Housing and is funded by the Supporting People Programme.
Castlehill is a direct access service. We accept referrals from the Northern Ireland Housing Executive as well as other external agencies. We also take self-referrals. Due to the demand for the service we do operate a waiting list.
