Did you know that as part of Birmingham City’s approach to ending homelessness, there are four commissioned services aimed at specific groups of people to provide specialised advice and support?
Homelessness HUBS are available for
- young people aged 16-25
- adults over the age of 25
- women fleeing domestic violence and
- adults aged 18+ leaving custodial services
The ASH – [The Adult Support Hub] is a one-stop for adults over 25 based at SIFA Fireside. It is not a crisis service and is appointment based and those who wish to engage in the services need to be referred in.
Offender Housing and Wellbeing Hub is part of the Spring Housing Vulnerable Adults Housing and Wellbeing Support Service, based in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham. The aim of the service is to actively enable offenders to live healthy, happy independent lives within communities through early targeted prevention, personalised support and partnership working to prevent reoffending.
The service provides face to face information, advice, guidance and navigation to offenders. The HUB provides a vital link between customer and other appropriate services, unblocking barriers and facilitating access into appropriate services including health, housing, employment, training and specialist services.
The Young People Services is provided in partnership with Spring Housing and St Basil’s. The service is for young people aged 16-25 with local connection to Birmingham experiencing or at risk of homelessness. There is a supported accommodation offer included for those young people who are eligible and the properties are managed by Spring Housing.
The hub acts as a specialist environment providing advice, information and support to women at risk of domestic abuse, who are as a result, at risk of homelessness. Birmingham and Solihull Women’s Aid working in partnership with the Council’s Housing Options team ensure a tailored, specialist response leading to improved outcomes for women and children.
