General Information

We carry out risk assessments on all referrals before we offer a place in one of our accommodation projects. We use information disclosed to us by the referral agent or individual to carry out background checks and ensure that the individuals in most need are allocated a space when it becomes available. Most potential clients will be asked to attend an interview to determine their suitability for a particular accommodation project.
