Support

At interview we will conduct a needs assessment. If the applicant is offered a place, we will create a support plan with the applicant before placing in the house. Each resident will have a support worker to monitor and work with the resident on their support plan. This will include signposting residents to services that will further meet their personal and housing needs.

Meaningful Activity

Source and provide training and volunteering for all residents with the aim of them gaining new skills and find new opportunities. 
Our aim is to look to offer employment to suitably qualified and skilled residents at Amazing Grace Spaces.
