In partnership with South Gloucestershire Council, we are pleased to announce that we will be providing 12 new homes to help prevent rough sleeping.
This is following a successful funding bid with the Government’s Next Steps Accommodation Programme, a nationwide scheme aimed at reducing rough sleeping by supporting residents into more permanent accommodation.
Paul Smith, Chief Executive of Elim Housing, said: ‘’We are delighted to have secured funding from the Next Steps Accommodation Programme which will allow us to provide 12 new homes, with the potential to have a life changing impact on individual’s lives and future prospects.
“The new homes will become part of the pathway of supported accommodation Elim already provides in South Gloucestershire. We have been working in partnership with South Gloucestershire Council to deliver homelessness-related services for over ten years, and we are really pleased to further strengthen our offer and increase the opportunities available to support people with experience of homelessness.”
We have picked up the keys to the new properties, which are based in Yate and Bristol, and we look forward to welcoming occupants over the next few weeks.
