Concrete have expanded their services into Cheshire East on their mission to make homelessness history.
Two services have launched today in the county, floating support and supported housing. Both aim to prevent people from becoming homeless and offer support for single adults, through to families.
The floating support service will be able to help up to 125 households at any one time to help them stay in their homes, and to thrive, not just survive.
We also have 18 homes available across the south of Cheshire East for people impacted by homelessness, providing them with support to secure a home of their own.
Sarah Forshaw, Head of Homelessness, Housing and Complex Needs at Concrete, said: “In spite of the unprecedented times we find ourselves in, Concrete are able to fully launch our new services across Cheshire East today.
“Homelessness isn’t just what you see on the streets. That’s why our support goes much deeper into the root of the issue so everyone who needs our support can achieve a more concrete future. We’re starting this service today having already helped 6 people into our accommodation and helping a further 6 to remain where they are.
“I’d like to thank everybody involved in getting this off the ground in what have been the most adverse of circumstances. It truly has been a team effort with everybody going that extra mile, and then some.”
Everybody who already received floating support in Cheshire East will still get their support. We will also be taking new referrals and will be working closely with the local authority to make sure those who need our support get it.
