It was wonderful to see so many people feeling really “at home” at Caring For Life over Christmas, whether it was in our supported homes or in the Centre at Crag House Farm on Christmas Day. It was a joy to be able to offer some people a home shortly before Christmas, and to see people safely rehoused.
On our conservation project at Crag House Farm there was something of a “housing crisis” at Christmas when the roof blew off a well-used barn owl box. It was quickly repaired and returned to its site. Another conservation task undertaken at this time of the year is the cleaning out of nest boxes, in time for birds pairing up and nesting. It is really encouraging to be able to provide them with a safe home on site.
Our Being There housing support team work hard to seek to help people find a safe home and to settle in, so that they really do feel “at home”.
Finding suitable housing for people in crisis can be extremely difficult due to the shortage of suitable, affordable housing. Our Being There housing support team work hard to seek to help people find a safe home and to settle in, so that they really do feel “at home”. Providing ongoing support is crucial, as helping someone to feel at home involves a great deal more than ensuring they have a roof over their head.
