SHS offer floating holistic support to our residents. We have a dedicated support team providing individual & group key work sessions. We work closely with other community services to ensure residents are engaging in services relevant to them.  


Move-On Strategy

With our ethos in mind, the move-on strategy is paramount to the support we provide. We help our residents gain the skills and knowledge required to enable them to move on to independent living. We provide workshops and courses on such as budgeting, cooking on a budget, Renting Ready, and we support our residents to work with local employment services. Although Safe Haven Sussex is providing temporary supported accommodation, there is no time limit on how long a resident can stay, for as we know becoming Tenancy Ready and finding appropriate and affordable accommodation make take time. Each individual is in a different stage in their journey, so we tailor their support and move-on plan to suit their individual needs.

We will support our residents through key work sessions, group sessions, house meetings and workshops to enhance their life skills, such as; health and well-being, budgeting and finance, knowledge of community services and what they can offer to support them, social integration, private rental accommodation, maximising their income, and whatever else the individual resident wants to learn to enable them to move on to being fully independent when the time is right.

SHS provides a safe shared living space for all our residents. All our properties are family styled homes with a communal area and kitchen. Each resident will have their own bedroom with a key. The  Safeguarding of our residents is at the upmost importance to us.  We take house matching very seriously. We endeavour to make sure residents are matched appropriately. All our homes are dry houses. SHS offers women only houses. We work closely with our Landlords to maintain the properties to a high standard.

Once residents are settled into their accommodation we support them to work on their goals. We encourage residents to think about education, training, volunteering and employment. Each resident has the choice to do this at their own pace. We work closely with local employment and education services and will encourage residents to engage in the relevant and appropriate services for them, to give them the options, advice, and support they need to get into education and employment.
