Housing, Support & Wellbeing

Our Housing Support and Wellbeing Services offer accommodation, support, guidance, coaching and welfare benefits advice to ensure that people moving on from our accommodation have developed the confidence and skills to do that successfully.

We provide support in the community for people who are insecurely housed, who may be threatened with homelessness or need additional support to help them maintain their accommodation.

We offer emergency accommodation to young people who are on the brink of being forced to leave their family home, or who have done so with no place to go. We also provide supported accommodation and Supported Lodgings to young people previously looked after by St Helens Local Authority.

Our services are divided into two departments:
