Independent Living provides a safe environment for you to develop your skills to help you live independently. We’ll work closely with you to understand your needs and create a plan to help you meet your individual goals.
Young people (aged 18-25)
Our programme for young people offers support to gain the skills required to move on to independent living. Staff at our schemes can help with new skills like:
- Budgeting skills
- Accessing local doctors / dentists
- Training opportunities
- Other life skills
To access our Young Persons programme referrals for accommodation are processed via the St. Basil’s Birmingham Youth Hub Gateway. They will assess your needs and signpost to the most appropriate accommodation service. You can also self-refer, or we accept referrals from other agencies.
We can help you if you are:
- Homeless or facing homelessness
- Not in education, training or employment
- Currently facing hardship
Our team will help with a range of learning opportunities including managing your money, keeping healthy, basic DIY, getting into employment, education, or training and advice on benefits.
Over 21s, at risk of homelessness
Our Homelessness service is for single adults and childless couples, over the age of 21. Before we make an offer of support and to make sure we're giving you the best possible service, we'll complete a risk and needs assessment along with an affordability assessment.
Our on-site team will support you with your accommodation needs. Our main focus is to work with you to help you gain valuable skills you'll need to live independently.
Families (limited - Sandwell and Northampton)
Our Family Service is for families or expectant mothers who need housing or tenancy support. We work closely with agencies to support you. The aim of our schemes is to provide a temporary home that gives you and your family an opportunity to increase your housing options and to secure independent accommodation.
