About the host organisation

Hosted by: Adullum Homes Housing Association Ltd.
Organisation Profile: People from all walks of life can experience vulnerability at some point in their lives. Adullam Homes is committed to providing shelter and support. To assist residents and service users we provide tailored support programmes, based on an individuals’ need, which enables residents to improve their quality of life and live independently. In delivering high quality planned support residents gain confidence, learn to maintain their tenancy and gain budgeting skills which equips them with the necessary skills to fulfil their potential. Alongside this we encourage and develop peer mentoring so that residents can share their stories of hope with others; accompanied by the learning, training and employment programmes, work placements and job opportunities we offer through matt25, we seek to restore hope and dignity.
