Derventio Housing Trust supports people who have recent experience of homelessness or face barriers in their lives . Our aim is for everyone to lead healthy and happy lives in a safe, secure place that they can call home.
We are committed to doing all we can to end the cycle of homelessness for as many individuals as possible.
We are also passionate about preventing homelessness in the first place. Increasing numbers of people are at risk of becoming homeless as a result of today’s economic climate, which has placed added stresses and strains to families and lifestyles.
Supporting people who are homeless to change and improve their lives is at the heart of what we do. Our support can range from helping people to manage their home and understand their rights and responsibilities, to emotional support, to help to gain access to other services.
We provide stable accommodation , and encourage people to think about their health, wellbeing and future.
We also offer further opportunities and chances to improve life skills and inspire people to make safer and healthier lifestyle choices.
