At the heart of everything we do is providing housing and support for people who are homeless or struggling with their housing situation.
High quality housing with support
Finding the right home
Our unique service means we can match people to the type of supported housing that is right for them. We will take into account the person’s situation, housing location and what they want.
High quality accommodation
A Derventio house should feel like a home. That is why all our properties must meet our high standards. We carry out repairs and maintenance to keep every home in good condition.
Everyone who comes to us is different. We work with each person living in our housing to create a plan to work towards their goals.
Most of the homes we run are shared. There are many benefits to living in a shared home, especially for people who haven’t lived independently before. Sharing a home can lead to new friendships and mutual support. It is a good way for people to get used to living independently while still having other people around.
As well as housing we offer support to help people to resettle and manage their home life. We help people to understand what they need to do to keep their home, including their rights and responsibilities. We also support people to deal with their individual barriers and challenges.
We are proud to be amongst the first organisations in the UK to take the Housing First approach. Traditional homelessness services work with homeless people to make them ‘housing ready’ – using training, rehabilitation and support to bring someone to a point where they are judged to be able to live independently.
Housing First turns this approach on its head. It gives someone housing as quickly as possible, together with the support they need to transform their life and enjoy living in a stable home. It is a very successful model that is based on the principle that housing is a human right.
