Supported housing in central Oxford

In 2020, we were incredibly proud to rapidly introduce supported accommodation in central Oxford, refurbishing and transforming several empty townhouses to offer stable homes for over 30 people experiencing homelessness for two years, minimising the number of transitions and time spent in temporary accommodation before access to a permanent home is possible.

These properties now include a women-only property for our women's project, and one used as a COVID-secure winter night shelter for rough sleepers in severe winter weather.

On joining our supported housing, participants receive support across a variety of areas, including:

  • Improving their wellbeing and building confidence
  • Taking pride in their surroundings, building meaningful relationships with each other and contributing positively to their household
  • Joining the housing register
  • Staying up to date with rent and any other payments
  • Registering with local services, such as doctor and dental surgeries
  • Connecting with other services in support of their personal development, such as Turning Point
  • Working towards and into employment
