Working in partnership with Hull City Council and local agency's to deliver a quality driven service dedicated to reducing homelessness and improving the lives and futures of individuals within Hull.
Westbourne House supports around 50 service users at any time, with all referrals made into the service via Hull City Council's Housing Options Team. With a 10:30pm curfew in place to enable us to monitor our services user's welfare effectively, we have staff on hand 24 hours a day to offer support. Our service users come from a variety of backgrounds, the common factor is when they arrive on our doorstep, they are homeless.
The Futures service exists to support people from the streets, providing a roof over their head and intense support with their personal issues that may have led to homelessness. The end goal is for the service user to go on to live independently with success. In short, we support people to enable brighter futures.
