  • The staff at Michael House are very supportive and reassured me that given time, my outlook on life would change. They have helped to give me confidence and improved my low self-esteem, so I’m thankful for having them in my life.

  • Michael House is a family to me. I came in, scared and alone and now have one of the closest supports networks I’ve had all under one roof! They are my crazy, manic family!

  • Michael House is a place where you are respected and supported. Old habits can be replaced with new positive ones. Where security comes from within these walls and develops within ourselves. The opportunities are endless when we work together.

Situation

Michaels Limited is an independent Charity that supports the homeless and vulnerable. With expertise in addiction support, offender management and learning disabilities whilst taking an active role within the community. In 2017, we became 'Dog Friendly' hostel, as we know that there are a number of rough sleepers on the street who cannot access safe accommodation without giving up what may be their closest and only companion.

Solution

By creating a nurturing environment, where our residents feel “safe, warm and inspired” and encouraged to overcome personal challenges and trauma, through 1-2-1 support, group activities and creative interventions. We aim to restore self-esteem, assist with life skills, access further education where necessary, and facilitate training for voluntary work or employment to enable individuals to rebuild their own lives and reintegrate back into the community.
