At a Glance

Here at KickStart Homes, we know that sometimes all it takes to change a life is a little support. The core of our efforts is to bring our dedication and passion to the range of services we provide. Through all of our endeavours we hope to display the conviction behind our beliefs. KickStart Homes will provide vulnerable adults who have low to medium support needs and are at risk of homelessness or are homeless supported accommodation with a floating holistic support approach. Our ultimate aim is to be able to give the service users the life-skills to move onto independent living

Holistic Support

At KickStart Homes we offer floating holistic support to our Service Users. We have a dedicated support team providing individual & group key work sessions. We work closely with other community services to ensure Service Users are engaging in services relevant to them. KickStart Homes works closely with the local authority to ensure that  housing benefit applications are undertaken as speedily as possible to ensure that the individual is provided with accommodation as soon after assessment as possible.

Move-On Strategy

With our ethos in mind, the move-on strategy is paramount to the support we provide. We help our Service Users gain the life skills to enable them to move onto independent living. Some of the workshops we provide will be on important issues such as being landlord ready and budgeting. Although KickStart Homes is providing temporary accommodation, their is no time limit on how long a Service User can stay for as we know moving on into independent living can be a daunting task.

Housing

KickStart Homes provides a safe shared living space for all our Service Users. All our properties are family styled homes with a communal area and kitchen. Each Service User will have their own bedroom with a key. The  Safeguarding of our Service Users is at the upmost importance to us. Here at KickStart Homes we take house matching very seriously. We endeavour to make sure Service Users are matched appropriately. All our homes are dry houses. KickStart Homes offers women only houses. We work closely with our Landlords to maintain the properties to a high standard
