How it works
Referrals are made by a number of agencies, including the NHS, community mental health teams, and MIND.
Men and women aged 18 or above are eligible if they are homeless, or at serious risk of homelessness, and are enduring mental ill health, including complex needs or dual diagnosis.
We work with access agencies, including community mental health teams, to provide a support plan to meet your needs.
