"Petrus Community provides supported accommodation for people experiencing homelessness, in housing need and who have been unable to access essential resources and support services. Many of these individuals have multiple and complex needs which often include mental health issues, substance misuse support needs, criminal activity, relationship break down and domestic abuse.
Without the funding we received, we wouldn’t have been able to fully refurbish five self-contained flats within our supported accommodation services. It was through the restoring of these properties that we were able to provide a safe place to live to a further five vulnerable people in our area who had been rough sleeping, classed as high risk and looking for shelter and support.
Thanks to this refurbishment we were able to restore property in one of our women’s only services, which was used to accommodate a woman who was street homeless after escaping a violent and abusive relationship.
This funding has had a significant and positive impact on people’s lives who would have endured further harm had they remained in their situation and during a time when we were in the middle of a global pandemic. This has enabled our charity to provide tailored support and assistance in a safe environment to more people which has been rewarding to the team who empower all our service users into contributing to their independence."
"Moving here was what I needed – a real life saver... to know I have someone to talk to after the loneliness of being on the streets."
