GP Sunderland operate a three bedroom house directly. This supported accommodation houses men who were previously homeless. One of the greatest needs that we aim to meet, is a place of calm and personal growth for those exiting addictions or an offending lifestyle. We will work with local churches, charities and support agencies to give our residents a high quality, caring, personalised support experience.
This project has had an amazing start. More details to follow.
Together with local churches we had identified that there was a great need in Sunderland for high quality supported accommodation that enabled people to become the person they were supposed to be - exiting the cycle of homelessness forever. We found that a large number of adults are sofa surfing in Sunderland or stuck in a cycle of staying in temporary accommodation without access to help to improve mental health, stay free from addiction or offending behaviours, or get into training or employment after long periods of sickness or instability.
This project is new and unfolding, more details to follow.
