New funding to support the Abigail Housing Drop-In

TSC has helped Abigail Housing access £105,000 over 3 years. This is  a contribution towards the salaries of the Destitution Project Manager and the Senior Project Worker. A significant proportion of both of these roles is providing advice, support, overseeing the drop-in sessions and managing and supporting the volunteers. The Destitution project currently supports 15 people in 4 shared houses in Bradford. We provide clean, safe accommodation in our shared houses, with regular welfare checks to ensure the standard of housing remains high. The houses are of a high standard, with private rooms, a shared kitchen, and access to Wi-Fi. They host a weekly drop-in for our service users, where they will be able to access cash support, vouchers, and where staff work with them to put together parcels that meet their needs for toiletries, household goods, and food. This drop-in is also a space where they can access wellbeing and skills development activities, including English language classes, casework meetings, and social activities with befrienders.
