For a variety of reasons and often as result of their experience of homelessness, members’ lives have been damaged and hence the target client group require support in the resettlement process by virtue of:

Isolation and lack of social engagement
A lack of the basic life skills necessary to sustain housing and/or fulfil their personal aspirations
Basic literacy and numeracy needs
Primary health or mental health needs
Needs in relation to treatment of and recovery from substance misuse
