We provide safe, affordable places to live that feel like home and focus on community spirit and togetherness. Our approach to support is based on strengths, and our residents are always at the centre of their own support plans. The support they receive reflects their aspirations to access education, training, employment and volunteering, their future housing needs, and addresses any physical and mental wellbeing needs. Our aim is to empower residents to gain the tools and skills that enable stability, independent living, promising futures, and connection to their communities.
Currently, we provide housing services and supported living across 12 different districts in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire and we are constantly looking to expand this to help even more vulnerable people in the community, changing and saving their lives.

By seamlessly connecting these stages together, we are able to support each individual who in some cases have been trapped in the same cycle of homelessness for between 5-10 years on a journey towards true independence where they can contribute to the community around them.

This is where we introduced our Housing First model and we now have 25 units of Housing First in Watford, as well as Aylesbury and High Wycombe.Housing First
