Mental Health Programme reources (360G-CheshireCF-A608897)


We are a 140-bed hostel operating in response to the problem of homelessness in the borough of Newham, providing a holistic support structure for homeless adults. As part of our Mental Health Programme we would like to cover costs for residents to access rehabilitation services and fund activities to help reduce social isolation / promote social interaction, including educational day trips and yoga classes. Funding would cover costs of enabling residents to access rehab services (travel costs, laptop/tablet so that residents can stay connected and complete concurrent elements of their programme, daily essentials including hygiene products / toiletries), costs of educational day trips - eg. British Museum – (travel costs, lunch costs, admission) and costs to commence yoga classes in-house, promoting wellbeing and social interaction (items the instructor has requested we purchase, including mats, blocks and resistance bands). We have identified a heightened need for rehabilitation services as we continue our focus on supporting those in our community with complex needs, and a similar need to combat the effects of social isolation post-COVID, giving rise to changes in our programme, acknowledging a need to promote self-esteem/wellbeing and to ensure we provide a supportive social environment within our hostel.

We are here to help people to build their new beginnings, by: Providing a safe place - to make sure that people experiencing homelessness have somewhere safe to stay as they begin to rebuild their lives. Offering support - to encourage and enable people to build a better future for themselves, through the provision of personalised support, education and life skills opportunities. Building resilience – to build networks of support, and empower people to navigate services with confidence and be a proactive member of their community outside of life at Caritas Anchor House. Our holistic support structure addresses health and wellbeing, financial management, education, volunteering, back-to-work preparation and support to achieve and sustain independent living. We provide services for single homeless adults, many of whom have experienced traumatic backgrounds and present with a variety of complex needs. In the year ending March 31st 2021 we accommodated 278 individuals and supported 137 individuals into independent accommodation. Over the same time period, 31% of our residents reported currently using substances, 48% reported physical health issues and 47% reported mental health issues that impact on daily life.
