Lack of proper accommodation is the primary risk-factor for ex-prisoners returning to the community. In 2012, 35% of offenders had nowhere to stay on their release. We provide good quality appropriate accommodation for those who walk with us.
We currently operate two houses in the Stoke on Trent area. These are supported and have rules that residents must subscribe to (for example, no alcohol; no illicit drugs; no unauthorised guests).
Our houses are well-maintained, pleasant and safe, and all residents are subject to regular drug-testing.
Each house consists of single-room accommodation with shared facilities. Each house is led by a House Leader, who is a ‘walker' with a measure of responsibility for the discipline of the house.
The House Leaders, and all the residents, are overseen by a Key Worker who is part of the Project’s core management team.
Long-term, we have plans for a women's house and a rehabilitation unit situated somewhere outside the city. This would enable us to take a much wider range of participants than is currently the case.
Our emphasis is on the quality of our programme, not on the number of people through the doors.
