Residential Care


"In my Father's house, there are many mansions"

John 14:2

The SVP operates two residential homes for homeless people and those with mental illness and two Home Office Approved Premises for offenders on license.


 In 2013/2014, the SVP operated two residential homes for homeless people and those with mental illness. Eighty-four beneficiaries were given a roof over their heads between the two projects based in Tyne and Nottingham.

The Nottingham project was transferred to the Nottingham Community Housing Association in January 2015.

The Tyne project has recently been refurbished to the highest standards, giving the residents back their dignity and a renewed hope for the future.

The Society also operated two Home Office Approved Premises for offenders on license. These residential units offered support to 120 clients during 2011/2012.

Support is offered for things such as substance abuse, literacy and finance management and focuses on facilitating the transition to independent living or a move to supported housing.
