De Paul House provides accommodation and support within a safe environment for 9 young people (16 - 21 years), who are homeless or having been looked after and cared for can explore and examine their lifestyles and options and begin to take control over their own lives.The level of support offered is dependent on individual need and linked to a comprehensive individual assessment of need of young homeless people. A process involving assessment and personal support planning aims to address both the social care and housing support needs of young people.

Referral Criteria

Referrals are made on behalf of a young person by: Social Work Care Managers. An informal visit to the project can be arranged for the young person prior to moving into the service. Following this a more formal meeting will take place to assess the suitability of the service and to identify how it can best meet the young person’s needs.

Length of Stay will be determined by the young person’s individual support needs, their ongoing development and the continued appropriateness of the service.
