89%

maintained their tenancy

In total we gave a home to 38 male adults including homeless Brits, refugees, asylum seekers and migrant workers. We also temporarily housed 3 wives along with their husbands.

77%

abstained from crime

77% of those who had previously been in custody, abstained from crime. 10 out of the 13 people who had previously been to prison returned to custody. The others are still on the straight and narrow.

53%

of those taking drugs reduced their intake

This is still an area we have struggled in however it is hoped that the addition of a specialist in substance misuse to the team will empower more tenants to overcome issues of alcohol and drugs in their lives.

Relationships are key to turning lives around.
