Safe, secure support that stays with you, offering a Better Future.
DePaul House is a residential support service for young adults transitioning into independent living. Situated in 3 linked properties each of the 9 flats have access to the communal garden and amenities. It is a supportive environment where our residents work towards gaining the necessary skills to secure and maintain a tenancy of their own.
Everyone is unique; if you move in to DePaul House the expectation is for you to collaborate with your assigned keyworker and contribute towards planning your future goals, to ensure you have the most informed and realistic options available to you for the future that you wish.
You will be welcomed to the service and will have responsibility for one of our nine supported flats. Our professional staff team are registered and trained, and are here to work alongside you 24/7. They’ll provide consistent support through safeguarding, key sessions, activities and outings, enabling you to build your skill-set and confidence.
"I felt safe at De Paul House. The staff were very nice and would never see me go without." Ryan, former resident.
Whilst you stay at DePaul it’s your home. Your opinion matters and we will listen to any ideas you have or wish to be involved in to make your experience the best it could be.
How to Get Involved
If you or someone you know would like to move in to DePaul House, you’ll need a referral from a Social Work Care Manager. Then we’ll arrange for you to visit the project so you can see what it’s like; after that we’ll talk with you to make sure that we’re confident the project can meet your needs and that you are ready to commit to the expectations & support of the service.
3 Activities We Offer
One to one time spent with your keyworker on a weekly basis which gives you the chance talk about your progress, achievements and what’s next for you!
We are proud to able to attend events such as Leaving Care Day, a yearly event that welcomes both service users and staff to host a stall and promote the project whilst taking part in a whole range of activities throughout the day and learning what support/services are out there.
We have group trips on a regular basis and have enjoyed white water rafting, go karting and skill building holidays to Blackpool and Lochgoilhead.
