More About FY Housing
There are many different reasons why people become homeless:
Young people asked to leave home
People with drug/alcohol or mental health issues
More recently, people have lost their jobs and are in turn unable to pay their mortgage or rent, the list is endless.
FY Housing provide more than just a home, heat, light & support. They offer a safe and secure environment, taking into account many aspects of life which can contribute or have an impact on an individual’s well-being. Helping someone to rebuild relationships with family or friends, stay in education, take up employment and training opportunities or deal with their drug/alcohol or mental health problem is as much about tackling homelessness as is securing a roof over their head.
FY Housing's dedicated staff and volunteer’s main objective involves creating a strategy which will encourage residents to take control of their own lives, by developing the skills necessary for independent living. The team aims to increase self-esteem, improve motivation and raise levels of confidence by the meeting and overcoming of challenging situations. These aims are achieved by offering practical support, advice, assistance, advocacy, representation and counselling. The team works with a variety of clients with high support needs, such as drug/alcohol dependence, mental health issues, learning difficulties, ex-offenders and entrenched rough sleepers.
