New Hope House (NHH) provides temporary accommodation for 10 people in individual rooms every night of the year. Residents can stay for six to 12 months.
Each resident is assigned a key-worker on arrival to provide support in preparing to move on to more independent accommodation and to encourage the development of skills needed to live away from hostel accommodation.
Residents are encouraged to take part in the daily running of the hostel, contributing to the cooking and cleaning. As part of their contract to stay at New Hope House, residents must participate in 15 hours of meaningful occupation a week. This can involve studying, or volunteering in the community or one of New Hope’s other services.
