Description

The Project started in 1995 and a Charity was formed 2001 and offers compassion to those in need in the Borough of Woking and surrounding areas regardless of age, disability, gender, race, religion, belief and sexual orientation. We believe that everyone has a right to a home, regardless of the difficulties and issues they may face in their lives. We also believe in showing those who need support that the wider community is there to help and to offer hope for a better future.' YRP offers an 11 bed night shelter, 18 move on beds and a Day Centre where clients can access support. Whilst accommodation is the ultimate aim, we recognise that in order to stop the cycle of homelessness, an holistic approach regarding all issues is required. The Day Centre provides advice and support alongside activities and training which helps to build self esteem and confidence. The ultimate goal at York Road project is to assist individuals to secure permanent, independent accommodation. However, we also recognise that for some people this is not possible. For those, we will try to support them to maintain our supported accommodation or refer to other hostels and relevant specialist agencies. We aim is to provide an integrated approach from point of entry into the service through to the point where the client feels able to move away from support. However, if in the future, the client faces a problem and requires support, we are happy to work with them. It is not uncommon for people who have previously accessed supported housing to struggle in their own tenancy due to a variety of reasons including social isolation. We can offer support at these times.
