Homeless Accommodation

We manage 62 units of temporary housing.

Through this accommodation we aim to provide a high quality of temporary housing for the homeless, that is safe and secure and also offer support to help its residents prepare for more permanent housing in the future.

Allocations for this housing are made by Gloucester City Council’s Housing Options Team. If you are at risk of becoming homeless you will need to contact them.

We own three hostels that provide individual rooms with shared facilities as an alternative to Bed and Breakfast and self-contained flats that are used on a more longer-term basis. We also have a further 34 properties across Gloucester which are used to place families and single people who are able to manage a property of their own or to provide a chance at managing a property, whilst continuing to find a permanent home.
