Site description

Our six-unit property in Preston is in a quiet residential street, walking distance from local shops and public transport. Each unit has: 2 bedrooms; shared lounge, kitchen and bathroom. We promote a sense of community here, and encourage the residents and staff (some of whom are peer workers) to get together regularly for the opportunity to share and offer friendly support. We run workshops every week on things like cooking, cleaning, budgeting, keeping on top of bills, self-care, managing your health, and finding balance in your life.
