Creating Cohesive Communites
About Prospect Housing Trust
Prospect Housing Trust houses and supports individuals from diverse backgrounds all of which need supported accommodation to build a solid foundation for their future. Our aim is for everyone to lead healthy and happy lives in a safe, secure place that they can call home.
Vulnerable individuals are some of the most disadvantaged, marginalised and excluded people in society. We are committed to doing all we can to support as many individuals as possible to build stronger supportive communities. We are passionate about helping people to get their lives back on track and take a person centred approach to the support we provide.
What we do
Supporting people to maintain their accommodation successfully and helping provide life skills so that our residents can lead a positive life. Improving lives is at the heart of what we do. Our support can range from pre-tenancy training, emotional support, assistance to gain access to other services.
We provide stable accommodation, and encourage our clients to think about their health, well being and future self. We also offer further opportunities and chances to improve life skills and inspire people to make safer and healthier lifestyle choices.
We work closely with Landlords, Local Authorities and a range of other agencies to accommodate and deliver a person centred support to our residents. We are very supportive of the needs of the BAME groups which all to often due to cultural biases are left with no where to turn to.
Here at Prospect Housing Trust we operate a dispersed housing model throughout our communities housing individuals in small groups, no more than four individuals within a house, from similar backgrounds creating positive small communities within our houses. We have accommodated people from diverse backgrounds who have support needs and create housing bubbles to enable individuals to move onto more permanent accommodation within the private residential sector in a positive supported goal orientated approach.
Our residents come from a variety of backgrounds which are housed within their own client group;
Individuals who are homeless and are at risk of becoming homeless
BAME groups which tend to have a higher rate of homelessness and support needs
Individuals who are fleeing domestic violence seeking refuge within our dispersed housing
Ex-services personnel requiring housing and support services
Individuals suffering from mental health such as anxiety and depression
Individuals who require supported accommodation due to the misuse of drugs and paraphernalia
Prison leavers on license who require temporary accommodation with support to settle back into society
Care leavers over 18 who no longer are supported by child social services
Asylum seekers seeking refuge within the uk
Due to the needs of our communities our offering has grown and we have adapted our services to meet these needs.
