Radford House based in Small Heath, provides semi supported accommodation to single homeless young people aged 16-25. A person centred approach support package is provided to 16 young people, 11 who are accommodated at the service and an additional 5 to whom we deliver support within the community.
Accommodation is self-catering with 3 clusters of 3 rooms, with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities. There are also two self-contained bedsits. There is a Laundry facility and communal lounge with access to internet.
Young people can stay with us here for up to 2 years. We support young people to reach independence and continue with the support when it’s needed the most as they are moving into settled accommodation.
The support worker will work with the young person to put together a bespoke support package which can be revisited as progress is made. Staff/key workers can assist with claims for benefits such as Job Seekers Allowance or Housing Benefit, assist young people to make a budget plan, give advice and guidance about healthy eating and shopping on a limited income.
All residents will have access to St Basils support services including Learning Skills and Work service, Prevention Services, schools training and mentoring project (STaMP) and Floating Support services.
