Every one of our houses is different, with a variety of locations, number of bedrooms and facilities to suit as many people as possible. Although houses are set up differently, in every house each resident has a single bedroom with shared communal facilities. Residents take responsibility for making food and maintaining a clean home.
Houses are managed by our accommodation officers who provide support and guidance in person and via a 24 hour on call system. Together, the accommodation officer and resident agree a pathway for their time in the house to prepare them for moving on. This could include things like learning how to cook, gaining budgeting skills or preparing for work by taking part in our Vocational Development Project.
Staff also encourage residents to pursue hobbies and interests and engage in the wider community and local events.
You need to contact our resource centres and be referred through our services or be referred to St Petrocs by another service provider or agency. St Petrocs also work with other agencies to find the right type of accommodation for each person.
The route to homelessness is not linear and often a number of factors push people in this direction, but homelessness is rarely the final destination on someone's journey. Every individual has a different story and they are often complex.
