Clarence House in Bedford is our second homeless hostel. This purpose-built hostel has 29 self-contained studio apartments with a team of support staff available 24/7, including specialist support officers to assist residents with a range of complex needs.
It comprises en-suite studio flats and an emergency bed, enabling residents to live independently while being supported by on-site specialists.
There is also communal areas, a computer suite, a training kitchen and staff kitchen.
On-site training and workshops enable our residents to develop the skills, confidence and resilience that will help them to move away from life on the streets.
The scheme also offers a ‘move on’ service for those who have been helped with their complex needs, to make sure they don’t return to a cycle of homelessness.
When people are given a place each individual gets a key worker, a personal support plan, and bespoke skills advice to help them achieve more independent living.
