What is Wilson Carlile House?
We are a homeless hostel for men aged 18 – 65. Customers are ex-offenders who are at risk of offending with mild mental health issues.
Each customer is assigned a support worker to develop a tailored support plan. There are four-weekly reviews of the plan and a risk assessment to see how each customer has progressed.
Key work sessions take place every two weeks in which our team identifies any support with education and training issues, aiming to help with employment opportunities.
Team members work closely with probation, police, employment agencies, drugs and alcohol agencies local college’s local voluntary agencies and any other agencies to assist our clients with their support needs. Our support covers:
- life skills such as ‘shopping on a budget’ sessions
- a regular programme of social activities to develop customer involvement and build self-esteem such as health eating sessions
- helping identify move on accommodation by liaising with local housing associations and private landlords.
We offer emergency beds for rough sleepers, some of these beds are used during the winter months as part of the cold weather provision that is run in Manchester.
Who we help
Men over the age of 18 who are ex-offenders may have complex needs including substance misuse/use and mental health.
We operate a referral process from agencies that our customers are working with, we also take self referrals. Once a referral is received, background checks will be conducted such as assessment of previous housing, previous rent arrears and any offences.
After background checks have been completed the client will be invited in for an assessment. The assessment takes around two hours and during this assessment it is established weather we can meet the needs of the client. If accepted the client will them be entered onto our waiting list until a bed becomes available.
