The Society of St James manages a range of specialist services that offer tailored support to certain groups of people. We have specialist supported accommodation that caters for homeless young people, offenders, chronic heavy drinkers, and elderly homeless people with substance misuse issues and/or mental health difficulties.
All of these services offer a high level of support that is needed by the users of these projects. The complexity of the issues that these service users have means that they need additional expert support that general housing projects cannot provide.
“43% of older homeless people have 4 or more additional problems including substance misuse issues, mental health conditions, behavioural problems and physical health conditions”
