Turning Lives Around - Seacole
Seacole provides young person’s emergency access to accommodation.
Young people, aged between 16 and 24 who are homeless with other vulnerabilities can be quickly referred to access emergency accommodation and help.
The project has nine emergency beds, providing short term accommodation for an average 4-6 weeks, plus three short hold tenancies enabling a longer stay.
Seacole aims to immediately assess clients’ personal and safeguarding needs and in co working with other agencies identify long term accommodation. Turning Lives Around and their partners also provide advice so that clients can access education, training or work as well as any additional issues clients might have with substance misuse, CSE, domestic abuse, mental health or family relationships.
