Additional Information
Our Supported Temporary Accommodation works with families who are homeless and have complex needs. We provide a safe, supportive and secure environment where these families can explore and address the issues contributing to their becoming homeless. Intensive support is provided in response to a variety of needs, including drug and alcohol addiction; relationship difficulties; anger management; and mental and physical health issues.
 
We also offer a childcare facility to children of these families, providing a place of learning, development and fun for young children, as well as a one-to-one homework mentoring programme and afterschool activities. Our breakfast club ensures that children living in Aylward Green receive a nutritional breakfast before attending school.
