Housing Support Work

Wallis House and Beracah aim to provide safe, secure, comfortable supported accommodation where young first-time mothers can develop their confidence and skills in parenting and independent living.

Staff are on site between 9am and 5pm weekdays, and an emergency on call service is available to all residents outside of office hours. 

 

Wallis House

Our service is particularly targeted at young mothers/mothers to be, between the ages of 16-19.

Wallis House consists of ten bedsits. On the ground floor are four fully-furnished self-contained bedsits with their own bathroom and kitchen. On the first floor there are six bedsits, fully-furnished with shared kitchen, lounge, bathroom and laundry facilities.

Each resident has a ‘named worker’ in the support staff team from whom they receive weekly support sessions. Sessions can be tailored to the individual through a support agreement, covering topics such as accessing benefits, budgeting, child development, parenting skills, accessing education, housing and independent living skills. There are also weekly house meetings involving all residents.

 

Beracah

Beracah provides semi-independent living accommodation for young homeless mothers/mothers-to-be, over 18 with low support needs. There are six bedsits, with shared lounge, kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities.

Accomodation Details Cost Per Week
Wallis House Upstairs £165
Wallis House Downstairs £180
Beracah £180
Service Charge £11 (paid by client)

Support staff are available and residents can ask for support as and when they require it.

 

Referral Process 

We take referrals from various agencies and local boroughs. If you are interested in a place, contact us for further information. We are normally able to offer a visit to see the accommodation if required.
