At LDHAS we offer practical and emotional support to homeless people aged 16 and over. In a typical year we have over 1000 visits by people who require varying levels of help and guidance. We have a team of eleven part time workers.
LDHAS has a project called Homeless to Home (H2H) this is a project funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund. The project focuses on street homeless services users and the aim is to support them in finding appropriate accommodation and sustaining the tenancy. Another part of the H2H project is to equip clients with the life skills needed to enable them to become independent. One way of achieving this is by offering training, volunteering and education opportunities.
We also offer advice on health, benefits, debt management and substance misuse. In addition to this we are a referral pathway for a number of agencies. Our immediate needs service offers breakfast and a hot lunch, food, shower and clothing and laundry.
